Short Avenue Elementary Follett Book Fair

The Book Fair is Here!

Follett Book Fair offers a wonderful selection of diverse reading material for students and their families. The Book Fair kicks off on Monday, March 18. Money earned from this Book Fair will go directly to enriching the educational experience of every student while also supporting Short Avenue’s Friends and Family library Media Center. Look for the Book Fair flyer in your child’s homework folder.

The Book Fair runs from Monday, March 18 through Friday, March 22 at 3:00pm. Students and teachers will preview the Fair on Friday, March 15. We are open during recess (10:20-10:45am) and after school daily for 1/2 hour, plus STEAM night and Food Truck Fiesta on Wednesday, March 20 from 5:00-6:30pm.

Volunteer NowDo you have a spare hour to help us?  We could really use your assistance with our Book Fair. Please contact us for more information or to volunteer. Break-down is Friday, March 22, 3-4pm.

All profits directly benefit every student at Short Avenue while also supporting the library. Our library needs major resources. More than half of our library collection is considered aged (with most books 30-40 years old) and prior to 2014 more than $25,000 in books were lost. We are 38% under the recommended amount of books for elementary school students. Every Book Fair purchase helps our students and our school!

This is a school-run Book Fair.

Short Avenue Celebrates Black History Month

Short Avenue 5th grade celebrates MLK DayShort Avenue students are celebrating  African American History all this month. Our 5th Graders chose to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr.’s powerful sentiment about equality and character by creating representations of their hands decorated with vibrant colors.

I look to a day when people will be not judged by the color of their skin , but by the content of their character.  –Martin Luther King, Jr.
