Fry Birthday Books

Are you looking for a great way to honor your child’s birthday at school? Fry’s Library Media Center (LMC) has an idea for you! Donate a book in honor of your child’s birthday to Fry’s LMC. It helps build our library collection and makes your child feel special at the same time!

Here’s how it works:

During October, sign your child up by going to the school webstore in PushCoin and paying the $15.00 for a hardcover book that your child will choose during their birthday month. By doing this now, it helps us know how many children will be participating this year, so we can have enough fresh titles on our Birthday Book Cart that the children will select from. During the month of your child’s birthday, we will have him/her choose a book and we will take their picture with the book. A bookplate sticker with your child’s name and picture will be placed in the front of the book. If your child’s birthday falls during June-September, we’ll have them choose on their half birthday month. Then your child will be the first one to check out his/her birthday book from the LMC, and once they return it, other children can check it out and enjoy it too!

It’s just that easy! Just sign up by paying the $15.00 through our Webstore on PushCoin and we will do the rest! You will need your email address and password for PushCoin to complete the purchase.

If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Loughran, Fry’s LMC Director ( or 630-428-7414.) Thank you for considering this way to honor your child’s birthday and help the LMC!

Student Absences Due to Travel

Please note the following, copied from the Fry Parent Handbook:

Prolonged Absence due to Family Vacations

When an absence occurs due to a vacation, students will not be given homework in advance. Alternative assignments such as keeping a journal and assigning some reading may be given when appropriate. Upon returning to school the child will be given makeup work to be completed in a reasonable amount of time.
