Shabbona was GLOWING last night for Family Literacy Night! Thank you to the students, staff and families for making this an amazing evening of reading, fun and family!
I am so excited to begin our fall Scholastic Book Fair on Tuesday! Our fair will run from Tuesday, April 11th through Friday, April 14th. It will be open till 2:00 each day, AND for our Family Literacy Night on April 13th. Some details you will need to know: *Each class will have scheduled times to come, and teachers will be sending that information out. *Tax is NOT included in the cost of the book, so please take that into consideration when sending money for your student's wish list item and send enough to cover tax as well. *If you choose to come with your child's class, please be prepared to show ID in the office since you will be in the building with their class. PAYMENT OPTIONS Cash. Please put it in an envelope with your student's name, their classroom teacher's name, and the amount in the envelope written right on it. E-Wallet. Link is below. You can add money to this account and your student will not have to worry about carrying any cash with them. We can look up their name right on the cash register so they don't need anything else. If you come in with your student's class, you can use your credit card. Please do not send credit cards with students! We will NOT be accepting any checks. Our only forms of payment are those listed above. If you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
