Happy Friday to all! A few of our weekly highlights and reminders are:

**JK-Gr 4 Family Literacy Night: May 5th 6:00-7:30. All primary classrooms set up with literacy based activities. Prize draw entry for every student and family that attends. Each family will receive a take home package. Book Swap: bring in gently used books and swap them out for some other gently used books. All families to gather at the end of the evening together for a Family Read Aloud. It promises to be a great night of family fun and learning!

**Calling all parents!! The Brookville Spring Fair is set for Saturday May 28 and with so many exciting activities and events we need your help to make it a huge success. We need volunteers for many tasks. So, if you have time before, during or after the event to volunteer please sign up. We only need an hour of your time (but we will take more if you have it!) so you will still have lots of time to spend with your family at the fair. Please click on this link to our online volunteer sign up: Thank you for your time.
