On Thursday night the Meadows community gathered at Barnes & Noble for a fun filled evening, including a scavenger hunt and readings by some of our favorite staff members, Traci Granberg, Michelle Legaspi, and Chris Primm.  One lucky family won a Nook!  All of this fun was part of a fund raising effort
by our PTA. 
There is still time to support this fund raiser on-line.  Just log into and enter Bookfair ID 10770352.  A percentage of sales completed by 6/5/12 will be donated to Meadows PTA.
