Hello FLAIM Families!
This week is going to be exciting as the Enchanted Forest Book Fair fills the Library with fun! Visit our Online Fair at http://www.scholastic.com/bf/brflaim
Students will come shop during their regular Library Class time, with a few exceptions. YOU are invited to come shop with your children during their class time. Please see the Fair website or check with teachers for the day and time.
This year, we have a Teacher Wish List display in which teachers have put the titles of Scholastic books they would like to add to their classroom libraries. This is a great opportunity to purchase books to donate to your child's classroom!
Wednesday, we are having a Literary Event! Students may come to school dressed as their favorite children's book character or author! Please join us for Literary Night when we keep the book fair open from 4 to 6 pm for your shopping pleasure. There will be volunteers reading popular books in the common area in front of the gym. It's a great opportunity to dress up and share your favorite story, if YOU are interested in helping out! And that wonderful aroma drifting in from the parking lot will be Ms. Ashby's husband and his Pullin' Pork food truck selling their delicious specialties!
Pre-K and Kindergarten families have another opportunity to shop BEFORE the Thanksgiving luncheon on Thursday. The book fair will be open especially for you from 11 am to 12:30 pm.
HINT: Shopping at the Book Fair is a great way to get some of your holiday shopping done! Thank you for supporting the BR FLAIM Library by participating in our Book Fair! Please contact me if you'd like to help!

TICKETS & BRACELETS
Pre-ordered tickets and bracelets will be given to the child listed on the order form. Please remember that ALL of Fall Fest is run by volunteers, who are doing the best they can. If your child doesn’t receive their tickets/bracelets, please check-in at the Welcome Table.
Cake Walk donations should be brought to the school in FRIDAY MORNING. Please park and bring your donation into the school. There will be someone available to show you where to go.
Pre-K, K, 1st: A PARENT/ADULT chaperone is required for these students to attend Fall Fest. If you can’t be at the school at 3:00, your child will be in a classroom with a teacher until you arrive. You may also arrange for another parent/adult to escort your child along with their own. You must let your child’s teacher know that this is allowed.
2nd- 5th: Students in 2nd through 5th grade do not need a parent/adult chaperone, however, a parent must pick up the child no later than 5:00 PM. Any children not picked up on time will be placed in Extended Day, and you will have to pay the $15.00 fee for their service.
If your child is allowed to go to the Fall Fest, you must complete the permission form. Otherwise, your child will be with an extended day teacher in Ms. Louque’s room during the festival.
All bus riders must bring a signed note giving the student permission from their parent to stay at school for the Fall Festival.
