Spring Book Fair
Our Scholastic Book Fair is a reading event that brings the books kids want to read right into our school. It’s a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. Please make plans to visit our Book Fair and be involved in shaping your child’s reading habits.

Book Fair dates: Friday, March 3rd-Friday, March 10
Shopping hours:

We accept cash, checks (made payable to Fork Shoals School), and all major credit cards. 6% sales tax is added to all purchases.

Don't have time to visit the Book Fair? You can shop online! Our Online Book Fair is open February 26-March 11, and all orders ship free to the school.

IB Parent Workshop
Join us for an informational workshop about the IB program at our school. Please submit this RSVP form indicating which workshop you plan to attend. Each workshop will be the same, so choose the one that best suits your schedule.

A Message from the School Nurse
We are now in the midst of flu season. To help reduce the spread of illnesses, please keep your child at home if they have a fever or are vomiting. They must be fever-free for 24 hours before returning to school. (This means fever-free without fever-reducing medication.) Encourage your children to wash their hands frequently.

Visitor and Volunteer Guidelines
The safety of our students is a top priority at Fork Shoals School and Greenville County Schools; therefore, Greenville County Schools has implemented a new volunteer application process. Click here for Greenville County Schools' visitor and volunteer guidelines, including the forms for Level I and Level II volunteers. ALL visitors and volunteers MUST have their licenses scanned EACH time they are at the school.

3rd Quarter Reading Challenge
Your child's goal: Read as many books as possible between now and March 22nd. Reading logs must be turned in to Ms. Knight no later than Tuesday, March 28th. We’ll have prizes for those who read the most in each grade level, and every participant will receive recognition!

All students have received reading logs. You can also print out a reading log here. (If your child reads more than 50 books, you can continue recording books on this blank reading log.) List books as you complete them. Remember that books can be counted only once, and only books finished should be recorded.

Freedom Rock
The Fork Shoals Freedom Rock is a fun, new way to show your support and to send a special message out to loved ones!
