SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR

SAVE THE DATE

3/11 - 3/14

Our Fox Library is gearing up for its very own Scholastic Book Fair! This year, the Spring Book Fair will benefit our library!

We are excited to announce the “Dino-Mite” SPRING BOOK FAIR!

This spring, the book fair will be held in the library, so there will be some changes to how and when students shop. Students who have library Monday-Thursday will visit the book fair during their library class. The book fair is also open before school at 7:45, during lunch recess (morning recess for 5th grade).

The book fair will also be open during STEAM night on Wednesday, March 13.

We also have a new way to provide funds for your student, teacher—anyone in the Dorothy Fox community! A few weeks before the fair, eWallet will be available through our fair website (http://www.scholastic.com/bf/dorothyfoxbookfair). Simply create an account for the student or staff member you’d like to gift with funds, print their foldable card, and present it to them. Recipients can shop for books up to the amount designated by you (your card will only be charged for the amount they actually spend). Did your student forget their card? No problem—we can look them up at the fair!

Thank you for supporting our readers and our library by shopping our book fair.

NATURAL PLAYGROUND

Natural Playground Surveys due February 8th. Fox PTA needs your input on what you'd like to see in a natural playground at Fox. These surveys are for parents and kids to fill out. The surveys include a brief description and photos from other Camas elementary playgrounds. Thanks for your participation! Surveys will be sent home in Friday folders.
