PTA HAPPENINGS – April 6-12, 2018

BOOK FAIR COMMITTEE:  Our online book fair has opened up April 5th, and you can shop until April 18th. This is the perfect opportunity for you to buy books if you are unable to attend our school book fair.  All orders ship FREE to our school at the end of the Online Fair, which is April 18th. Books will be handed out to students at school. Don’t let the weather prevent your child from reading   When you click on Shop Now, you will see a page that asks for zip code. Type in 60004 and then click “search.”  From there you will see “Ivy Hill Book Fair.”  Click on “shop now,” and you are in.

Ivy Hill PTA Scholastic Book Fair “Paws for Books” needs your help for Book Fair & Preview Day, April 10 and 11. Many slots are available, feel free to sign up for multiple sessions.
