SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR - October 31-November 4
The Scholastic Book Fair is back at SRTMS from October 31-November 4. Come to the MPR 7:30 am - 3:30 pm (M, T, W, F) and 7:30 am - 2:30 pm (Th), and check out the wide variety of books for sale for the whole family. Our book purchases not only give our students some great books, but also help to fill our teacher's classrooms with books as well.
Check out our homepage at www.scholastic.com/bf/srtms for more information and opportunities to volunteer. The fair will also be available online by clicking here. Let your friends and family members know about the opportunity to buy books from our fair online! In addition to providing books for our families, we have an opportunity at our fair to provide books for others through Scholastic's "All for Books" program. Donate your change (or more!) at the fair. The amount we raise will be used to purchase books, that through My Stuff Bags Foundation, will reach those children in need. Find out more at the fair!
Join us on Wednesday, November 9 for our monthly Family FUNdraising Night at Islands Restaurant, Newbury Park. Please bring a copy of the fundraising flyer with you, and Islands Restaurant will donate 20% of your food and beverage purchase back to our PTO.

Due to numerous student allergies, ALL SRTMS classrooms are “peanut/tree nut free zones”. NO peanut/tree nut products are allowed in the classrooms. NO EXCEPTIONS. All food products brought to the SRTMS campus (example: parties, teacher luncheons, sports banquets) MUST be approved by the classroom teacher or office staff. Students may enjoy peanut/tree nut products in their snacks and lunches, yet precautions will be taught to all students to minimize cross contamination. All questions or concerns are to be directed to the Health Office.
