All shoppers will leave with a take-home s’mores treat, in addition to their delicious new book purchases.

Book Fair Shopping Begins on Monday!

Book Fair shopping begins on Monday! If your child is making purchases during the school day, please read the following for payment instructions.

Please send cash or check made out to MLS. Do not send blank checks or checks with blank amounts! Change from cash or check will be sent home; if you aren’t sure of the total your child will spend, estimate high and you’ll get the change. Book fair sales are tax-exempt. From parents, we can accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express.

Most teachers create wish lists for their classroom libraries. If you’d like to gift a book to a teacher, please ask at the register.

All book fair sales benefit the MLS library. Thanks for your support of the Scholastic Book Fair and MLS!

Talent Show Success

Thank you for coming out to support the Talent Show on Friday evening.  It was a fun evening with some amazing student talent.  I appreciate all the support from the parents involved in the talent show.  Whether it was auditions, dress rehearsal, coordinating practices, costume and prop purchases, making baked goods for the bake sale, volunteering at the talent show or breaking down chairs at the conclusion of the show you ALL helped to make this show a success and I thank you!

DVD’s are available for purchase.  Please sign up here.   We will let you know timing for delivery as soon as possible.  DVD’s will likely cost between $15 – 20 (depending on how many people sign up).  The video is being edited now.  We will collect $$ by backpack mail once the DVD’s are distributed. 

Thank you again for making the 2017 Talent Show a huge success!
