Fall Book Fair is Happening Soon!

The Book Fair Schedule during the school-day is as follows:

  • Thursday, Nov. 16 - students will come preview the book fair and create their "wish list"
  • Friday, Nov. 17 - students will have the opportunity to purchase books
  • Tuesday, Nov. 21 - students were absent or have money remaining can shop the book fair

The book fair will also be open for families to shop:

  • Thursday, Nov. 16 - 4-8 PM
  • Tuesday, Nov. 21 - 12-4 PM

Prior to the book fair, a book preview catalog will come home. In that catalog will be information on setting up an e-wallet, which is essentially like an e-gift card set up in your child's name. Parents may also send in cash with their child. Please keep in mind that tax will also be applied to the order.

There are still some volunteers needed throughout the book fair. Please sign-up via the Sign-up Genius Form if you are available to help. Thanks!

November is the month of Giving and Gratitude!

This year we will be collecting Urgent Needs items for DuPage Pads. Pads provides interim and permanent housing and support services to end homelessness. Collection bin is located in the school foyer.

We will continue our Kindness Calendar tradition that encourages Arbor View students to do one random act of kindness per day.


Kindness Essay Contest
This year we are asking Arbor View students to write a short essay on Kindness. Students can write about a personal experience or a book they read about the importance of being kind. The essay should (1) explain what kindness is, (2) why it is important to be kind, and (3) give an example of how to be kind. All Essays are due by November 30th and can be turned into homeroom teachers. There will be a winner from K-2nd grades and a winner from 3rd-5th grades.

Prize: $25 Gift Card

Donations for Food Pantry Still Being Accepted Through November 30

On Friday, November 18, many Arbor View families came together to embrace the season of giving by attending the Stone Soup Supper to collect donations for the Glen Ellyn Food Pantry. Families got to watch a skit performed by the Arbor View Inside Out Club, listen to one of our Arbor View students read a version of the Stone Soup story, learn more about the GE Food Pantry from food pantry board member, Kathryn Meagher, pack up personal-care item donations, and of course, enjoy a warm bowl of Stone Soup!

So far, Arbor View families have donated over 1,500 items to the food pantry. Help us reach our goal and earn a school-wide Pajama Day by donating 3,000 items through the end of November.
