Weekly Message from Mrs. Yates: The Scholastic Book Fair is coming our way! Choosing their own books empowers kids and inspires them to become Bolder, Prouder, and Stronger Readers. AND—as always—every book they buy earns rewards for our school. Our Fair will take place April 17 – 21 in the Hominy Valley Media Center. Students can shop each day from 7:00 – 2:15. Families and friends are welcome to shop at our after-school event which will be on Tuesday, April 18 from 2:15 – 5:30. This year, say goodbye to cash and hello to eWallet—your child’s digital payment account. Before the Fair, set up eWallet for worry-free, cash-free purchases. Anyone can contribute! Share each child’s eWallet so friends and family can add funds and give your kids more books to enjoy. If you can’t make it to the Fair, then shop at our school’s Online Book Fair. All orders ship directly to your home, and shipping is free for book orders over $25. Your online orders will also benefit our school. Visit our Book Fair homepage to learn more and get started with eWallet and online shopping: Book Fair Homepage: https://bookfairs.scholastic.com/bf/hominyvalleyelementarysch1 We will have a PTO Meeting tomorrow afternoon at 3:00 p.m. in the Media Center.

From our PTO: PTO will be hosting a holiday store December 5th through the 10th, during school hours, for the students to shop for their friends and family members. Gifts will range from $.25 to $12 a piece. You will be receiving a flyer soon along with an envelope to help you budget with your child for how much they should spend on each person. If sending money for the holiday store is not something that you feel your family can afford at this time, there will be an opportunity for all kids to shop regardless of whether or not they have money. In the past, the children have really found this to be a fun way for them to independently shop for their family members. They will then get to come home with wrapped presents to gift during the holidays.
