NOVEMBER 7 - 14th
FMES is excited about our upcoming Book Fair - Sir Readalot's Castle!
Your student will be entering the "Kingdom of Books" - where they will find the latest and finest titles for kids. There are also books of interest to parents in the "Kingdom".  Mark your calendar for Tuesday morning, November 11th. We will be having a special family event from 7:00 a.m. - 8:00 a.m., where you can come shop and have breakfast with your child.  Your child's teacher will have a "Wish List" so you can contribute to your classroom library.

 You will also be able to order online from  November 2nd  - 22nd - a great way for out-of-town relatives to order books and support our school.
Do you love reading? Volunteer at Sir Readalot's Castle and share your love of books with our students.
