Fiesta Book Fair
Reading is the most important skill you can teach a child. Of all the skills children learn, it is the one you can influence the most. We invite you to visit our Scholastic Book Fair and experience a celebration of reading that provides families the opportunity to get involved in a universal mission:encouraging kids to read every day so they can lead better lives. Our Scholastic Book Fair theme is Book Fair Fiesta. Erwin Elementary will host the book fair April 7, 2014-April 11, 2014. Shopping hours will be from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. There will be a Family Read-In on Thursday, April 10, 2014 from 6:00-7:30 p.m. Parents who attend will be given a free book from the Scholastic Book Fair. Walking Tacos and drinks will be sold by our PTO from 6-7 p.m. 1 Walking Bag Taco Dinner is only $4.00. Read and Rise, a short seminar on practical ways families can help their children become strong readers and learners will also be presented. All purchases will benefit Erwin Elementary School.

Give 5 Summer Program
The amount of time students spend reading at their level correlates strongly to the success they experience in school. It is so important, that our state superintendent, Dr. June Atkinson, has requested that local businesses and organizations donate books so that each elementary student can go home this summer with at least FIVE books on their reading level. Last year we were able to send home that many books with each child, but due to cuts in our funding we are unable to do this again. WE NEED YOUR HELP! We are in need of parents and other organizations to help us reach this goal! If you are willing to help us out, please contact me via email or by phone. We do not need the books right now...We only need verbal commitments to helping us reach our goal. We are working in conjunction with Gentry Primary to ensure all students (around 3,000 books) have five books on their level to read this summer. Join us in creating a community of readers this summer. Please email Angela Hill at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the school at 910-897-7178, ext. 222.
