Book Fair and Six Flags Read to Succeed

Reported by on 2/6/19

Dear Parents, Here are 2 important news items from the LMC. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me directly at

Book Fair Information:
It's Book Fair time at Peterson! The books were delivered this past Monday, and the students watched the LMC transform for the fair.

Either Tuesday or Wednesday, students had the opportunity to fill out a "Wish List" indicating the books each child thought were interesting. Hopefully, these "Wish Lists" came home, as they will be useful when searching for the books you may be interested in purchasing. It is also very helpful to have them with you as you are browsing at the Book Fair since table numbers are listed on the Wish Lists.

Students, parents, and community members are invited to shop during the following days and times:
Thursday, February 7th
​— During school hours 9:15 am - 3:15 pm
​—During Open House hours 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Friday, February 8th
​—During school hours 9:15 am - 3:15 pm
Monday, February 11th
​—During school hours 9:15 am - 11:30 am

​—​—​—If you send money with your child, please make sure all money is in a sealed envelope labeled "book fair". If sending a check, please make sure it is made out to Peterson Elementary School. Taxes will be collected upon all book sales. Credit sales are accepted by adults who are purchasing as well.

"Teacher Wish Lists" will be available inside of the LMC area if parents or students wish to purchase a book for their teacher's classroom library. Please ask the book fair associates for help if you wish to participate.

Students are always excited for this fair and love this time of year in the LMC. We look forward to seeing you at the upcoming fair. All proceeds from sales at the fair go towards books, materials, and technology that touch ALL of our students. As always, your support is greatly appreciated.

Six Flags Read to Succeed:
If your child was working to read for the free ticket offered by the Six Flags Read to Succeed program, the reading logs were sent home mid-January and will be due February 15. If your child finishes the required minutes of reading to earn a free ticket to Six Flags Great America, please turn them in as soon as they are done. I can begin adding student names whenever they are turned in.
