Birthday Books for the Library!

In keeping with a district-wide initiative promoting health and wellness, we are encouraging parents to find fun alternatives to food for celebrations here at PBE.

Rather than buying treats or cupcakes for the class, buy a book for the PBE library in honor of your child’s birthday. Mrs. Busboom will inscribe a bookplate in the book with your child’s name and put the book in a special “Birthday Books” display. Your child’s class will have the first opportunity to check out the book. For short/picture books, your child’s teacher may read the book to the class as part of the birthday celebration.
