The PTA virtual book fair will run between March 2 and March 15. Would your child like to win a free book from the book fair and a gift card to a local restaurant? Enter our reading photo raffle for your chance to win during our virtual spring book fair! Just snap a photo of your child reading and submit it using this form to enter the raffle.

During the last six days of the book fair, one winner will be announced each day (March 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, and 15). Mrs. Alexander will connect with each winner to select from an assortment of prize books, and families will be notified.

5Essentials Survey for Students in Grades 4 & 5 

Students in grades four and five will take the 5Essentials survey during the school day between March 8 and March 12. This survey is based on many years of research at the University of Chicago. Students’ identities will be completely confidential, and teachers and administrators will never see individual responses to survey questions, only summary-level responses.

Please be aware that under the Protection of Pupil Rights Act. 20 U.S.C. Section 1232(c) (1) (A), you have the right to review a copy of the questions asked of your student(s). Survey questions are available on the 5Essentials website. If you DO NOT want your daughter or son to participate, please fill out the opt-out form and email it to Shabonee Principal, Dr. Panozzo, before March 5, 2021.
