Country Meadows PTO, Nov. 6, 2020

11/9! The Scholastic Book Fair is here!

Did you know that every year thousands of dollars worth of books are added to our Learning Center using Scholastic Dollars via Book Fair proceeds?

The Scholastic Book Fair is back! While our Fair will be exclusively online this year, we still plan on making it a fun and magical experience for our kids. The Country Meadows Book Fair traditionally generates funds for new books for the Learning Center, classroom, and students.

Fair Dates: Nov. 9 – 22

SPIRIT WEAR! Win a free T-shirt for your teacher!

Due to the positive feedback and enthusiasm for our last spirit wear sale, we opened up another round! And now ... FREE SHIPPING (see details). WHAT A GREAT IDEA FOR HOLIDAY GIFTS! We even have $8 T-shirts available! The classroom with the most orders gets a FREE T-shirt for their teacher!

Holiday Spirit Wear Highlights:

  • We have new designs.
  • We have additional sale items, such as fleece blankets and scarves.
  • Personalization is available for an additional $7.50.
  • There is a free shipping option to the school if parents select the free school bulk order delivery. A date in December will be designated for pick up. So long as there are not further COVID-19 mitigation restrictions, parents will be able to pick up their orders at school. If restrictions do not allow this, the PTO will make other arrangements to ensure that parents receive their orders.
  • There is still an option to have items shipped to your home for $9.99.
  • Spirit Wear makes great gifts!
  • This is not a fundraiser. The prices remain the same.

Option 1: Download the HJ eShare app, enter the school code CM2021, tag and upload your pictures.

Option 2: Go to, enter the school code CM2021, and tag and upload your pictures.

Option 3: Go directly to eShare and tag and upload your pictures.

Don't Get Lost!

We aren't losing hoodies and water bottles in the school building much nowadays, but we are sure you are doing some physically distanced activities outdoors and your family's masks might all be similar, no? Label them! And support the PTO!

Mabel's Labels donates 20% back to the school so that we may have the funds to get creative with programing for this special year!

Please go to Mabel's Labels and type in Country Meadows. Be sure to select Long Grove! You may apply any coupon codes or discounts and the school still benefits!
