Spring Hill Annual Book Fair
Monday, October 22nd – Friday, October 26th
The Spring Hill PTO’s Annual Book Fair is right around the corner! This years theme is “Dive into Reading!”. The large pod will be transformed into our very own coral reef, filled with a treasure trove of books, critical thinking games and activities for the students to explore!
Don’t forget to volunteer for a shift or two as we support our school community, promote literacy, and raise money for our school. Please follow the link to our volunteer sign-up sheet.
Come enjoy FREE ice cream scooped by Spring Hill’s wonderful teachers and staff at the Ice Cream Social! Take advantage of evening shopping hours and check out what’s on your teacher’s classroom wish list! The Book Fair will have a tremendous selection of books, critical thinking games, and gifts for all ages. Parents and community members are welcome to shop throughout the week. You don’t want to miss it!

Q: I’d like to buy something for a teacher. How do I know what they would like?
