UNICEF COLLECTION DURING HALLOWEEN
Students have received UNICEF boxes through their individual classrooms for our annual participation in this Halloween fundraising tradition.  If your child would like to participate, please have him/her use the UNICEF collection box on Halloween to collect coins from friends and neighbors. The collection box can be returned the week after Halloween to the Littlebrook office. Of course, remember to have coins ready at your own house to help support this community effort! If you have not received a box or have any questions please contact John Livingston at john_livingston@comcast.net, or or Jon Hodges at jonathan.hodges@gmail.com.

BOOK FAIR - Now through Saturday November 4th 
Mark your calendars for this year's Scholastic Book Fair! The fair will be open from 8am to 3:30pm during the week and will remain open through the Breakfast & Books event on Saturday morning. Don't forget to stop in the All Purpose Room to shop before or after the Halloween Parade on Tuesday, and daytime conferences on Wednesday and Thursday. Students will attend the book fair with their classes; schedules for browsing and buying times will be sent home in backpacks soon. All Littlebrook parents are welcome to assist their children during these times. Please contact Rachael Cooper (recooper25@hotmail.com) or Rebecca Prenner (rebeccabaumgold@hotmail.com) with any questions or if you would like to volunteer.
