Easton PTO plans book fair

The Easton PTO would like to thank everyone who helped with the harvest party.  There was a great turnout, and some awesome high school and middle school kids attended who were so much help.

Thanks to the moms and dads who brought in lots of snacks and delicious treats for all to enjoy, and those who helped set up and tear down.  The PTO appreciates their service.

The PTO will sponsor our our annual Fall Book Fair, which will be open for parents to shop on Monday, Nov. 19, at the afternoon and evening parent-teacher conferences. 

The fair will also be open to the public on Saturday, Dec. 1, as part of the craft fair happening that day at the Easton Elementary School.  The children will be making wish lists of the books they are interested in and these lists will be available upon request for you to look at, to help you decide on a book. 

Any questions, contact the Easton Elementary School at 488-7700.

It is almost time for the Christmas Bazaar at the school.  If you have any gently used items you would like to donate, please drop them off at the Easton Elementary School. 

We are also looking for a few volunteers to help.  On the day of the bazaar we need people to help wrap gifts and assist the younger children in choosing presents for their loved ones. If you can help, please call Peggy Arnett at 488-6904.
