The Book Fair is this week, from 7:15 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 7:15 a.m. to noon on Friday in the library. 

Students will go with their classes during an assigned time to shop during the week, and parents and grandparents are welcome and encouraged to join them. Students will be able to shop with a parent or grandparent before or after school, as well. Paperback books start at $3.99, and some hardback books may be as much as $20. The library will receive about 40% of the proceeds from the sale.

Last Week to Bring Cans Before Break

Collection cans are set up in the main office, lobby and Early Childhood Center for your canned food donations to the Chattanooga Area Food Bank. We encourage families and students to get in the habit of bringing canned goods with the practice of "buy one, bring one" or BOBO. Each time you buy a can at the store, buy another one for CAFB and bring it to school. Thank you!

Do Not Block Driveway on McDade Lane
