Book Fair


Come visit the Book Fair this week! We have books for those that will be making their communion this year, cook books, young adult books and parent reads. We are running low on the Author Visit books, so come in while supplies last!


We also have a library and teacher wish list section to update libraries to help keep them current for our students. Happy reading!

Doctors appointment? Dentist appointment? An early flight? We understand!


We completely understand that there are unavoidable reasons why you may need to check your child out of school early, but please help us by doing the following:
