Book Drive Happening Now until Friday

This community service drive was named after Darcie Jones, a Walnut Acres parent who started a book drive in the Spring of 1994 to benefit the summer reading program at Meadow Homes Elementary School in Concord. After she died of cancer on December 31, 1996, the PFC renamed the book drive “The Darcie Jones Book Drive” and planted a tree outside the 3rd grade wing in honor of all that she had contributed to Walnut Acres Elementary School.  Please help us continue this tradition of collecting new and gently used books to benefit the Meadow Homes Elementary School summer reading program. Drop off books by the school office,  the crosswalk or drop off loop Monday, May 10th thru Friday, May 14th

Scholastic Book Fair
Monday, May 17th - Thursday May, 20th

We are happy to share that we will be having another Book Fair on campus May 17th - 20th with the hopes of loading kids up with books to read over the summer!  This will be different than our normal on-campus book fair since we are not completely back to full campus functionality and still have many campus restrictions.  The Book Fair will be open starting Monday, May 17th - 20th with hours each day from 4pm-6pm.  Watch for more detail to come out soon!
