The Book Fair website and Online Fair can be found at http://bit.ly/bookfair5
Teachers sign up to bring their classes to the book fair throughout the week so they can browse and shop. Each class will come 1 time. If a student brings money on a different day, they will be allowed to come down to the media center and shop for books. Parents are invited to come during their child's class time or any other time during Fair hours! You can check the Satchel Ford website to see what time your child’s class will visit the Book Fair.
If sending a check, please make it out to Satchel Ford Elementary PTO.
The ONLINE Book Fair is open November 23 and is available 24/7 through December 6.
The link is above. All purchases made on the website will be shipped to the school once the fair is over and will be sent home with the child.
The Satchel Ford Library receives profits from the Book Fair in books and cash. Monies received from the Fair go towards purchasing new books and eBooks for the Media Center.
A Message from the Principal
Welcome back to another great year at Satchel Ford Elementary School! It's so exciting to be part of a distinguished institution of learning, where ALL children can be a STAR in both academics and the arts!
Last year, Satchel Ford saw much development and evolution in the areas of mathematics instruction, scientific inquiry, and the effective integration of instructional technology in support of student learning. I look forward to overseeing and supporting continued positive change in our school, while honoring and preserving the rich traditions of Satchel Ford’s tremendous history of success in our community. To that end, this year our primary areas of focus and development will be inquiry-based, S.T.E.M.-oriented mathematics and science instruction, the full implementation of reading workshop and purposeful independent reading models in our ELA classrooms, and the continued enhancement of digital learning opportunities for children. All of this academic development will be enveloped in a meaningful and creative cultural arts program. In short, we're an awesome school, but we're striving to become even better!
If you ever have any questions, concerns, or compliments, please don’t hesitate to call me, send me an email, or simply drop by and speak with me for a few moments. It takes all of us working together to build successful young adults! Remember, …my door is always open.
