4th Annual Book Fair 

The fourth annual Discovery bookfair is coming in December, hosted once again by Bookworm Central. A portion of all sales form the bookfair go to the Discovery PTA, and are used for things like author visits, field trips and other PTA funded activities.  


As always, we need volunteers to make this a great event. Volunteers are needed to set up, make sales and pack away at the end. Please take a look at the sign up genius and volunteer where you can -

For K-2 Parents:  


Our Reading Specialist have provided a helpful list of books below.  These are titles the teachers are using/will use with Explorers as they go through the TC units of study.  The books are great for parents to read at home with their students.  Or if parents have these books at home and are looking to donate them to classrooms this list is a great guide. They hope this provides some direction as families are buying books at the Book Fair for their students.
