Book Swap & Dates, Dates, Dates

Book Swap for 1st – 5th Grade

The Girl Scouts are organizing a book swap for grades 1 – 5. A book swap is an opportunity for the students to exchange books that they have outgrown for books that are new to them. It is also a good example of “reusing” and “reducing”, which is good for our environment.

From Monday, May 9 – Wednesday May 11 children in grades 1 – 5 can bring in gently used books for children of any age to their classroom teachers.

For each book your child brings in, he or she will receive a token for the day of the swap. The Girl Scouts will collect, sort and organize the books.

On Thursday May 12 the books will be displayed in the elementary cafeteria for the students to browse. The children can take one book for each token they have.

We welcome you to drop off as may books as you would like for the swap, but there will be a limit of 10 books that a child can take. Leftover books will be donated. If you have any questions, please contact Maureen Lyon at

Thank you for your support and participation!

A Message from our Counselors

Our next Elementary Counselor Parent Coffee will be on Tuesday, May 10th from 8:30 am to 10:30 am in the ES Faculty Lounge.  The topic of discussion will be “Transitions:  Preparing to Move On, Saying Goodbyes, and Adjusting to New Surroundings”

If your family is leaving SAS at the end of this school year, whether you are going “home” or to a new international setting, please come join us at the next ES Counselor Parent Coffee, on Tuesday May 10 th.  Share the difficulties your family is going through, what you’re working on and learning together, and get suggestions and ideas from other ES parents who are in similar circumstances! 

Hope to see you there!
