Special Santa Program!

Hello Fronteras Families,

Fronteras is participating in the Special Santa program. With generous donations of Christmas gifts for children from new born to high school, we help provide a wonderful Christmas morning for those in need.

Santa tags are hung on the Christmas tree in our school lobby. Each tag has the gender and age of a child. More tags will be on the tree on Monday, December 5th!

If you are interested in joining us to help make this Christmas special for lots of local children, please stop in and grab a tag or two.

Attach the tag to the UNWRAPPED gift and bring to Fronteras by December 19th. When ready, all gifts will be delivered to Santa's warehouse where Miss Pierce and our 8th grade students will assist with the organization.

Thank you in advance to those who are able to support this program!
