Book Fair

Our Scholastic Book Fair is underway; it’s held in the Donaldson Way library. The books fair is open August 26-29. Tomorrow, the book fair will be open at 1:15pm to accommodate our Kindergarten Shoppers. Please come out and support the book fair.
Book Fair
There is a strong connection between Book Fairs and promoting literacy. With each Book Fair we hold, more kids and families are given access to great books. Book Fairs are unique experiences because they:
  1. Give all students access to quality books in every price range, interest, and reading level.
  2. Offer exclusive, more affordable editions of many of the most popular books sold in retail stores.
  3. Allow kids to preview and choose books they want to read, which elevates their motivation to read.
  4. Engage families in literacy activities that reinforce with students that reading really matters to the school community.
  5. Help Donaldson Way earn books and funds to improve school and classroom libraries.
Along with an extensive variety of great books, Scholastic Book Fairs offer many developmental items, such as school supplies, journals, and activity kits that encourage exploration, self-expression, creative problem-solving, and other important skills.We hold two book fairs every year. So don’t miss out!

Who is the Dragon Family??!

The Dragon Family is our school community.  It is made up of the students at Donaldson Way Elementary School as well as the teachers, maintenance and custodial staff and the administrative staff at Donaldson Way Elementary School; it’s made up of other Donaldson Way School organizations, too.  More than that, though, it is made up of grandparents, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, cousins, foster parents, foster siblings, businesses…

WE ARE ALL PART OF THE DRAGON FAMILY
The Dragon Family is where you belong and where you contribute.  Let’s connect, learn, play and grow together.
The Dragon Family is committed to helping everyone (students, teachers and staff, parents and other family members) feel supported and engaged as we make sure our kids are growing up kind, respectful, responsible and safe.

We look forward to working with all of you to make our school a great learning environment. I hope to meet all of you throughout the rest of this school year.

Heidi Zipay President, Donaldson Way PTA
