Follett Book fair
Our school is hosting a Follett Book Fair!
Supporting a love for reading is critical to student success. Supporting your school is just as important. The Follett Book Fair encourages your child's reading habits, builds their personal libraries, and raises funds for the school, all at the same time.
What makes Follett Book Fairs different? Follett has been supporting schools for more than 140 years, which means you can expect an awesome selection of titles from a wide range of publishers. These are the books your children want to read. See the attached flyer for some examples. Please note, prices do not include sales tax.
There are two great ways to shop our fair and everyone is welcome to participate. This year we will have an in person and online fair. When you participate in either of these fairs, you can purchase books for your child, yourself, a friend, and your school.
Book fair dates: September 20th - 27th
Book fair times: During library class and online for the entire month of September!

Information on New Shaw
Courtesy of Turowski2 Architecture:
The new school is positioned north of the existing school, which will allow continued use of the existing school during construction and the shortest possible overall construction duration. The new building will be 2 stories, with special needs and flex use spaces located in grade level neighborhoods to promote inclusion through co-teaching and collaboration through a team teaching model. A central library at the heart of the school, together with the cafetorium and gym, will serve the very popular after school program and other popular and pressing community uses. At the heart of the Second Floor, two Science/Technology/Engineering rooms are co-located adjacent to the Art Room and outdoor rooftop classrooms.
