Book Rodeo 

Looking for some new books for you kids? Thoreau PTA's annual Book Rodeo book swap is on Thursday, December 8th from 10 am-4 pm. We are collecting gently-used children's books, especially middle-grade chapter books, easy-readers and non-fiction.

Your donated books can earn you Book Bucks (2 books=1 buck) to put towards new books. Or books can be purchased for 25 cents/book.   

  1. Bag up the books you want to donate, labeled with the student & teacher's name, number of books donated and signed parent's permission.
  2. Put your books in the red donation tub at the main office by December 5th
  3. Students can use Book Bucks or quarters to shop on Thursday, December 8th. Parents can shop during lunch recess or after school until 4 pm



Here at Thoreau we are so fortunate to have a wonderful and dedicated staff!  We asked our faculty to provide wish lists so that we could show them our appreciation throughout the year by fulfilling some of their "wishes".  These lists also provide some of their favorites, so expressing our gratitude with gift giving at the end of the year and during the holidays is made easier.  We will continue to update this document as we gather more info!
