Each class will have the opportunity to visit the Book Fair with their teacher during this week. Students may purchase books at that time, before or after school, or may fill out a wish list to take home. Don’t forget to include sales tax of 8.0% if writing a check, payable to "Dingeman FFC." Credit cards are also accepted (VISA, Mastercard, Discover, American Express), no debit cards or prepaid credit cards. All sales are final, no exchanges.

On Family Night, Wednesday, March 4, 2015, we will have guest readers, raffle give-aways, a wonderful performance from our Honor Choir, and dance routines from Mrs. Morioka and Mrs. Grobosky’s classes.

We’re looking for volunteers to help out by working the register, straightening up books, assisting students in selecting books, and setting up and tearing down the book fair. Click here to sign up if you are interested in helping!

All Book Fair proceeds go to purchase books for Dingeman's Library and Teachers. Last year we purchased over $10,000 in books!

Thanks and see you at the Book Fair!

Book Fair Co-Chairs

Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Drops of rain and dark skies didn’t dampen the spirit of Mrs. Hagan’s 3rd grade class, or Mrs. Lee and Mrs. Grobosky’s 4th graders who joined hundreds of students from Knox Middle School and six other elementary and high schools to ensure that Dr. King’s dream lives on.

We were entertained with cheers, ROTC demonstrations, band performances and skits by children who brought ... read full article
