Scholastic Book Fair Begins. Thank you to Ms. Baldwin for offering us Portable #1 as our sales site. Than you to Ms. Black & volunteers for co-ordinating this event.
Please consider supporting our school through purchases made at the book fair. A portion of funds is given back to the school to support a variety of initiatives that directly impact student equity, achievement, and wellbeing.
You can even support your child’s classroom directly by purchasing a book listed on the teacher’s wish list. The book is then added to the classroom library.

Festivities begin at 6:00 pm and will conclude by 7:00 pm approximately.
Kindergarten classes perform first with a brief break following Ms. Martin/Campbell’s class & Ms. Jones/Ms. Hall’s class performance. This allows caregivers to pick up our youngest students who may need to get home to bed!
The remainder of the evening will showcase performances by: Ms. Shaw, Ms. Choudhuri, Ms. Reynolds, and Ms, Pennington’s classes.
We look forward to seeing you there.
A sincere and heartfelt thank you to the Courcelette Community for being amazing partners and supporters.
