Virtual Scholastic Book Fair – PD will be hosting a virtual Scholastic book fair, running from May 11th through Sept. 4th.  All you have to do to access our online fair is go to:https://bookfairs.scholastic.com/bf/piercedowner.  Books will ship directly to students’ homes, and shipping is free if you spend $25. What a great way to stock up those summer home libraries!

SLC’s Inpatient Kid Care Event AT HOME – Our original event was scheduled for March 13th. Since we still wanted to support the patients and nurses at
Edward Hospital and Rush, we decided to bring the event to the participants’ homes. Kid Care Kits were dropped off to 11 families last week. They will be tying fleece blankets, assembling handmade birthday cards and coloring “happy birthday” signs that will be used as decorations for patients at the hospitals. We hope to deliver these completed kits in the beginning of June. Thank you to all who are participating and for the incredible parents on the Service Learning Committee who helped plan and prep this event. If you have any questions, please contact Jennie Amidei at jenamidei@gmail.com.
