Grandparents & Special Friends Day – April 7 & 8
We are so excited that Grandparent and Special Friends Day is back! See the flyer for details!

We still need volunteers on Thursday April 7th from 10:30-1:00 to help with the K-1st graders and on Friday, April 8th from 10:00-2:00 to help with the 2nd-4th graders.  If you are available for any of these dates and times, please email KC Hutchinson –

PPE Scholastic Book Fair – April 4th-8th
After a two-year hiatus, it’s BACK! Our Scholastic Book Fair will take place in the library from Monday, April, 4th thru Friday, April 8th. It will be open for families to shop from 3:30-5:00 on Monday, April 4th.

We’re encouraging families to use the Scholastic Book Fair eWallet. The eWallet is a safe and secure alternative to cash. You can create a free account and add funds that will allow your child to select books. When they come to the fair, we’ll look up their eWallet. The eWallet is a great alternative to cash.

Visit our Book Fair homepage to learn more and get started with eWallet and online shopping:

Students can bring their Grandparents’ and Special Friends to shop the Book Fair when they visit PPE on Thursday, April 7th and Friday, April 8th.

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 benefit our school as well.

Thank-you for your help with this year’s Book Fair! Don’t hesitate to email Miss Stuart with further questions. Happy reading!

Book Fair – Volunteers Needed
We are so excited to be able to welcome grandparents and special friends to the school again!  Ms. Stuart needs a few volunteers to help with the book fair during this time.  Volunteers will be asked to bag books, help with line management and possible help kids with book selections.  On the Friday we will need volunteers to also help with breaking down and boxing up after book fair is over at 2:00.  Here is the sign up to help!  Thank you!
