Online orders will be delivered directly to your child’s classroom.
The Family Shopping Night and Ice Cream Social, featuring Toby’s homemade ice cream, will take place Wednesday, November 16 from 6-8pm. Family Shopping night will be held inside the ATS Library alongside the Ice Cream Social in the ATS Cafeteria. Ice cream will be $3 for one bowl or $5 for two and will be CASH ONLY. Volunteers are still needed for this event. If you are interested, please contact ice cream social lead Kristin Roser or sign up here.
Your book purchase at the book fair will directly support our school and local community and R.E.A.D.’s mission to ensure that vulnerable young children in Arlington have new, quality, culturally relevant, and free books.
