All Candalaria parents and students are invited to our Open House on September 5th at 5:30! Come see your classroom and meet your teacher, as well as the other Candalaria staff. Please feel free to bring your school supplies with you, if you have them.
Parents, if you have medication for your child, this would be a great time to turn it in to the office. Parents of kindergarten students, you will have an opportunity to get your child's assessment time schedule if you haven't already.
** Class lists will be posted in the halls during Back to School night, as well as the first day of school**
At 6:30 p.m., after the Open House, we will have a gathering in the cafeteria for new parents and any other parents who would like more information about our school. You will learn about upcoming events planned for this year, various volunteer opportunities, and meet our principal, Mrs. Kerry Lohrman, as well as some of our PTA members.

Don't forget to stop by the Book Fair which will be open for business during Ice Cream and the Arts.
Every year we host two Scholastic Book Fairs in the school library. These book fairs offer a wide variety of books for all reading levels and interests. The proceeds from our book fair sales are invested back into Candalaria. For example, this year every student in every classroom received a subscription for Scholastic News, Dyna Math or Storyworks. In past years, we have purchased smart boards and other classroom equipment.
Our Spring Book Fair is scheduled for May 1-5. Each day the fair is open before school 8:30-9:05 am and after school 3:30-4:30 pm. We will also be open during Ice Cream and the Arts on Thursday the 4th from 6-8 pm.
Teacher bins are an important feature of our Candalaria book fairs. The bins contain books selected by your child's teacher that they would like in their classroom library. If you purchase a book for a teacher, you receive a 20% discount on the purchase.
If you don't know what books to buy for your child, our teachers also select books they recommend. Look for signs on the shelves that say "teacher pick" and you will know which teacher has made the recommendation. These teacher picks are usually the first to sell out at our fairs.
If you can't make it to the fair, you can shop our Online Fair.
Thank you for supporting the book fair!
