Nurse Shapira's closet

Ms. Shapira still needs lttle boys underwear (sizes 5-7), boys & girls clothes sizes 5-8 (mostly boys), big kid clothes...not a ton, and socks all sizes.

Direct Donations are Still Being Accepted

If you haven't already made a direct donation, please consider doing so! Without your generosity, we are unable to do as much as we do, which includes Field Trip reimbursement, special assemblies, Generations Day, Cookies and Cocoa and Teacher Appreciation Week to name a few...


Online Buzz Book

In lieu of a paper Buzz Book, we are using MySchoolAnywhere.com to organize our directory! This is less expensive and easier to manage and will be a snap for you to access and update.


Here is the parent's guide, if you have questions about the service and site.

If you did not receive a join code or you need help, please contact our volunteers at rfespta.buzzbook@gmail.com .
