Earth Day Celebration - April 22nd
Do you know how much waste is generated during lunch? Are there ways to help reduce what gets thrown out? We plan to show the students just that by having a NO-WASTE lunch on April 22nd. Have the students show their support for the Earth bringing in their lunch in reusable containers. We also want to turn the school to BLUE or GREEN, so have your student wear either of those colors that day. See the attached document for more information and to sign the pledge to get GREENER and BLUER.
Take the Earth Day Pledge!
Moraine Spring 2019 Dino-mite Book Fair
Please join us for another book fair at Moraine! The Spring theme is the DINO-MITE Book Fair: Stomp, Chomp, and Read! We will need all claws on deck during book fair week and to also help with set up and take down. We are looking for parents to help children shop that have brought in money, fill in wish lists, and assist with the guessing jar. The book fair committee will be working all cash registers and someone from the committee will be present during all shopping hours.
The book fair will be open the week of April 22rd. Classes will shop during their usual Media Center time and the book fair will also be open during conferences for family shopping and during breakfast with a buddy.
We would love to have you join us. Please sign up if you are available to help. Looking forward to another fantastic event! Spring Book Fair Volunteers
