Award-winning author and illustrator, David Catrow, is visiting Keowee on Tuesday, October 22nd! David has written and/or illustrated over 80 children's books and has worked on animations of the movies, Despicable Me!, Horton Hears a Who, Stuart Little, and Enchanted! He will share his love of art and design, along with what it takes to write and illustrate children's books. Besides his presentations that day, David will also work on autographing books. Many of his books can be found on Amazon and bookstores. Please feel free to send books that day with your child to be autographed. Make sure to include your child's name and homeroom teacher so that we can return the books to you!

Follett Book Fair
We are trying something new this year...our school is hosting a Follett Book Fair!
Supporting a love for reading is critical to student success. Supporting your school is just as important. The Follett Book Fair encourages
your child’s reading habits, builds their personal libraries and raises funds for the school, all at the same time. 
Book fair dates:
October 28th -November 1st
The fair will open each morning at 7:20 and will close each afternoon at 3:30.
Join us on Tuesday, October 29th from 5:00-6:30 pm for family shopping and Keowee’s 2nd annual Trunk-or-Treat festivities!
Don’t forget to send your student with enough money to cover sales tax. Support your school and the avid readers in your family by visiting
the book fair. See you at the fair!
