San Elijo Elementary PTO Updates for October 23rd

Book Fair Social – Wednesday Night
We encourage all SEES families to come in their pj’s and bring a blanket and flashlight as we celebrate our love of bedtime stories. Families can purchase pizza and ice cream and then enjoy their favorite books by flashlight in the SEES Garden. Also, Noa Nimrodi will read her book, Birds Can Fly and So Can I in the library and the computer lab will be open for taking AR quizzes. A reservation form for pizza and ice cream went home last week. Please return your form by Monday, October 24th

Fall is in the air and books are everywhere!
Our book fair always brings the joy of new books to read. It’s also a great time to tidy up your bookshelves and give your old books a new home. So, why not participate in our SEES Book Swap? The SEES Book Swap will take place in December but collections start tomorrow! Collection of books will run from Monday, Oct. 24- Friday, Oct. 28th. Gently used books should be  placed in a tied bag with your name on it and dropped in the collection can located in the front of the school. Questions regarding the Book Swap can be sent to Thank you SEES Community for continuing to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle!
