Spring Book Fair

It is almost time for Central Manor’s Spring BOGO Book Fair- May 16-20

The PTO is still in need of volunteers during the event. Please use this link to sign up:


Spirit Day – Friday, May 13th to get excited about the book fair opening on Monday, May 16th!

The theme of the fair is “Paws for Books” so we’d love for students, if they wish, to bring in a small, unframed picture of their pet that will be displayed at the book fair.  Please have your student put their name and class on the back of the picture and turn it in to their teacher on Friday.  Please also note that the pictures will not be returned, so make sure you have a duplicate copy at home!  Can’t wait to see all those adorable critters!
