THE EES/KMS BOOK FAIR IS COMING!!! “Howdy Partners! We can’t wait for you to “Saddle Up and Read!” at our Book Fair on Friday, October 6th through Friday, October 13th at the EES Library. The book fair will be open most mornings from 7:30-7:50am and 3:05-4pm. There will be a Family Night event… for grandparents, parents, aunt and uncles who want to shop with their children. This is a great time to pick books for a birthday, Christmas or “just because” with extended hours on Tuesday, October 10th. The PTO will be hosting a Family Night Event with extended hours also. (date and time to be announced) Look for more information to be sent home with your child the week of October 2nd.

Overdue/Lost or Damaged Books  Please help your child keep track of their library books. Most classes send students on a daily or weekly basis to check out books, so students usually have multiple times they can check out throughout the week. If your child returns a damaged book, remember you are responsible for the replacement cost of the book. If a book is “lost” we give the child many reminders and opportunities to find and return lost books BEFORE putting it in the IC reminders.

Please notify the office if:

Your child’s after school plans get changed. (please notify us by 2:00 PM)

If you are going to be out of town for an extended period of time, please remember to let us know who will be responsible for your children. We’ll need contact names and numbers.

Emergency contacts ~ Please verify who you have listed as emergency contacts. In a real life emergency, we will need to verify who is able to pick up your child/children.
