Backpack Express

Good morning,

This is part two to yesterday’s Backpack Express.  There are a couple items that you need to know about:

  • Flu Shot Clinic:  Sowams is hosting a flu shot clinic on Wednesday, October 26, 2022, from 4:00pm-8:00pm.  It is recommended that you preregister to get the flu shot.  There is no charge for the shot. You may register at  More information may be found here.  

  • Book Fair:  Our fall book fair is coming up.  It will take place the week of October 31, 2022.  Students will visit the book fair with their classrooms on either Monday or Tuesday.  (We will let you know what day your child will visit.)  Children will also have the opportunity to visit during their recess times throughout the week.  On Thursday evening, November 3, 2022, there will be a family night from 5:30pm-7:00pm.  This is a time for the family to visit the fair.  Volunteers are needed throughout the week and for set-up and clean-up.  If you have submitted all of the paperwork to volunteer and are on the approved list, you are eligible to volunteer.  You may sign-up to volunteer here.  

Thank you for your support of Sowams School.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
