Book Fair - Friday, February 28th – Thursday, March 6th
Our Scholastic Book Fair theme - Book Fair Fiesta: ¡Yo Quiero Libros! ¡Vamos a Leer! (I Want Books! Let's Go Read!) – surrounds students in the celebration of reading with hundreds of fun, engaging, affordable books for them to discover. Giving kids access to good books and the opportunity to choose their own books will motivate them to read more. And like most acquired skills, the more kids practice reading, the better they’ll get.
Reading is vital to every child’s success, and raising kids as readers means getting involved while they’re young. Now is the time. Since there will never be a substitute for a parent’s direct involvement in his/her child’s education, please make plans to visit our Book Fair. Hope to see you there!

NEW AT TOWN CENTER- We Are Collecting Vista Ridge Receipts
If you shop at Vista Ridge, you can help TCE. Send your receipts (or copies of your receipts) to school with your student. Local schools are competing for cash prizes. Every dollar spent at Vista Ridge equals one point…..including the food court and movie theatre! Help TCE earn cash for Technology and other school needs….Just by turning in your Vista Ridge receipts. Thank You!! Turn in any receipts dated after August 1 of this year. A box will be placed in the school to turn in your Vista Ridge receipts.
Shop at Tom Thumb? Join Tom Thumb's Good Neighbor Program by completing this form and returning it at the grocery store: Tom Thumb Form Last Year we raised $900 from this program!
What are eBoxTops?
eBoxTops, like physical Box Tops, are worth 10¢ each for your school.* However, instead of clipping these Box Tops and sending them into your school, eBoxTops are awarded electronically to your school earnings at http://www.boxtops4education.com/ and will be included in your school's next Box Tops check amount.
How can I earn eBoxTops?
You can earn eBoxTops by shopping through the Box Tops Marketplace or the Box Tops Reading Room. Each participating retailer at the Marketplace and the Reading Room has agreed to donate a certain number of eBoxTops for every qualifying $10 purchase a Box Tops member makes through http://www.boxtops4education.com/ .

PINK YOPLAIT LIDS
Pink Yoplait Lids are being collected for their Save Lids to Save Lives Campaign in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness. For every lid we turn in, Yoplait will donate 10 cents to Susan G. Komen. We will collect lids up until December 10! There is a pink bin in the cafeteria. Last year we turned in 898 lids! Can we surpass that number?! Bacon says, “ our possibilities are limitless and we can do it”
