Gently Used Book Collection

Northeast will once again be providing gently used books for students during our fall book fair. We want every student to have the opportunity to take home a book that week.  If you are doing some summer clean-outs, please set aside your gently used children’s books. We will start collecting books at Kindergarten Orientation on August 26th.  Look for the boxes at the front of the school building under the awning. The Northeast Fall Scholastic Book Fair is scheduled for the week of September 19th.
