Dear Forest Glen Families,


Our Anderson Book Fair is coming soon! We hope you can visit the Fair Wednesday, November 13 through Friday, November 15. Once again this year, our goal is to put more books into the hands of students. This program is called Every Penny Counts. If you are interested, please send any donation with you child, to school, in an envelope marked Every Penny Counts.  You may also drop off a donation when you come in for parent / teacher conferences.



All of the money collected goes directly to purchasing books for children at our school who may not be able to purchase a book themselves. Last year was our first year participating in this program and we were able to purchase a book for every student in grades 1 through 5. Our goal, is to raise enough money to put a book in the hand of any child that would otherwise not have one.


Please send any donation back to school with your child by Monday, November 11. The money we receive will be used to purchase books at our Book Fair, so our total sales figure will increase, as well. This means the cash profit we receive from our fair will also increase! 


On behalf of the students and teachers of Forest Glen Elementary, thank you!


Tammy Glynn, Candice Arnold and Carolyn Klein -Book Fair Co-Chairs
