On Nov. 18 from 5 to 8 p.m., the Eagle Elementary Parent Teacher Organization is hosting its annual book fair. Food trucks from Neighborhood Pizza, of Carmel, and Kona Ice, of Indianapolis, will be parked in the elementary school lot for families and book fair attendees to purchase foods along with their purchasing of books.
“Both organizations will be donating a percentage of their sales to Eagle Elementary PTO,” stated Zionsville resident and PTO member Amy Sousa.
According to Sousa, the Scholastic book fair features books for kids from pre-kindergarten classes through eighth grade classes.
“But there are adult books, such as cookbooks and best sellers. While this isn’t a major fundraiser for the school, it does promote the fun of reading for students and families,” Sousa stated. “Any funds generated from the book fair event go toward the PTO’s general fund, which provides support for new technology, field trips, classroom supplies and other events.”
Eagle Elementary is at 350 N. 6th St., in Zionsville. For more information about the Eagle Elementary PTO, visit www.cms.zcs.k12.in.us/eag.
