Volunteers Needed at the Fall Book Fair!

Marguerita families are awesome! The Fall Book Fair has a lot of volunteers --we've collectively signed up for 32 hours worth of work so far! Unfortunately, we STILL need some in the critical time slots from 8am-noon that our kids will be shopping with their teachers and classmates. The truck from Scholastic is coming today with our delivery!

Please sign up if you can stay for an hour after drop off or pick up, or come early before your parent/teacher conference or before picking up your child. Next week is almost all minimum days, except for Thursday which is regular Thursday schedule.

Box Tops Class Contest

Box Tops earn money for our school! The PTA is sponsoring a class contest, so start clipping and turn your box tops in to your child's teacher!
