This week is American Education Week, Fall Book Fair and Grandparents' Day.

The Fall Book Fair and Grandparents' Day depend heavily on our families to make them happen. Please consider contributing your time and/or food to these:

For the Book Fair, we are still in desperate need for volunteers to help out (both during school Wednesday-Friday) and during the family shopping night Thursday night. You can sign up here: Any questions, contact Heather Wauls at

For Grandparents' Day, we are still looking for volunteers to help serve, and then donations of food. Typically we serve breakfast and lunch items to several hundred guests on Grandparents' Day (so you can imagine the amount of food needed). Every little donation helps. You can sign up here: Any questions, contact Gwen Pescatore at

This Thursday is Dine Out Night at Chic-Fil-A in Montgomery Mall 5pm-8pm...Knapp Home and School earns 10% of all sales.

American Education Week, you are invited to observe your student's classroom. If you cannot attend during the scheduled time, please contact your student's teacher or the office.
