It's a virtual wallet! Deposit a predetermined amount of money and any funds not used will be credited back to you! 

Book Fair volunteers: Volunteers are needed to help make the Book Fair a success!  The Fair will be open during in-person parent-teacher conferences on Thursday, November 4 from 3:00-8:00 PM.  Students will make their wish lists when they preview the books with their class on October 28-29.
