Book Fair Volunteers Needed

Just a reminder that our next PTO meeting is on Thursday December 1st at 3:45pm! We will be discussing our upcoming Bingo Fundraiser in February. Please come and give us your ideas and suggestions.

ALSO—Our lovely Tasha Macfarland asked us to send this out for volunteers with our book fair, if any of you can help PLEASE sign up!

Ahoy mateys! The Scholastic Book Fair will set sail on Monday, Dec. 5th, but you can participate online starting Friday! Go to the book fair website-
Shipping is free to the school and we still earn book bucks for all your purchases! And if you’re interested in helping with the Fair, you can sign up at the same website. Books are a treasure!

Read-a-Thon Packet Turn In

If anyone else is like me and has waited until the last minute to turn in read-a-thon packets…tomorrow is your day!

bookwormGet those minutes filled out, initial your parent heart away, and write those checks (if you are giving). There are so many great prizes that your kids are patiently waiting for!

This event has already been a great success with all of the reading. And the Bug Chicks were a will not be forgotten anytime soon. We’ll let you know the results after they have been turned in and tallied.

Thank you for your participation!

It’s Read-A-Thon Time

The theme this year is “Don’t Bug Me, I’m Reading” and there is a buzz in the air as we get ready for the biggest fundraising event of the year!


Your child(ren) should have brought home their official reading log by now. The envelope has all of the information you might need, but if you find yourself worrying that you missed the deadline (as I often find myself doing) we have provided some information for you below.

What you need to know:

Reading begins March 18th and ends on April 1st. Every day your child will need to track their minutes and write it down on the official log and a parent will initial.

Select a goal and get pledges! The envelope is your pledge sheet. 100% of donated money goes back to the school through the Lava Ridge PTO!

Donations can be turned in anytime between April 1st – 10th. Make sure to turn yours in so you don’t miss out on the fantastic prizes.

And a special thanks:

We are so lucky to have some amazing sponsors. Thank you to Hoodoo, Umbrella Properties, and Cascade Indoor Sports for your generous support of Lave Ridge PTO!
