Your child’s teacher is also collecting donations for their grade-level theme basket.

  • Second: Picnic in the Park: Family Day at the Park

An Amazon Wish List for Silent Auction ideas has been set up to help make filling the class baskets a simple click!

There are lots of clearance books at the BOGO Book Fair that would be a great addition to the 5th grade basket.

Funds raised at the silent auction go to support classroom, family, and extracurricular events at Jason Lee Elementary.

Please have your donations into the school by May 16.  Thank you for your support!

Do you love the Book Fair?  Have you thought you might like to learn how to run the fall & spring scholastic book fairs?  The Jason Lee Elementary book fairs have been tended to by Becky Pospical and Kristina Weikum.  They’ve been thinking about training up new people who love books as much as they do to take over their legacy.   Send Becky an email, beckyp93@outlook.com, and sign up to hang out at the spring BOGO book fair to learn the ropes.

One Book One School

Dessert First by Haillie DurandMarch 19-23 every child and staff member at Jason Lee Elementary will be given their very own (to keep) copy of “Dessert First,” by Hallie Durand. There will be a published schedule to read a set amount of chapters each day. In order to make the book accessible to all, there will be recordings of each chapter on the Jason Lee website.

A few volunteers are needed to come in during breakfast time, March 19-23, to read aloud to the students as they eat their breakfast. Chapters are short and only take about 3-5 minutes to read. If you want to read the assigned chapters for the day or partner/group up and share the readings that works. Please contact Kristi Herling (509-539-4270) or email Kristi.herling@rsd.edu if you are interested in reading at breakfast time.

This will be a great week to all read together!!
