School Spirit Beach Dress-Up Day, March 20

The Student Council School Spirit Action Committee is sponsoring Beach Dress-Up on Friday, March 20. Students are invited to wear bright colors, tropical prints, sunglasses and beach accessories. Bathing suits are not allowed. Please continue to dress for the weather and wear toe-covered shoes for playing outside on the playground.

Soccer Equipment Donation Drive

We are collecting new and used soccer equipment for kids participating in ESCO's community outreach soccer programs. The youth in these programs do not have the means to play organized soccer let alone afford the necessary equipment.

ITEMS NEEDED: Soccer equipment for kids in grades 2-5 (soccer cleats, shin guards, and size 4 soccer balls).

ESCO is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization located in Arlington Heights. For more information about ESCO visit www.elitesoccercommunity.org or follow on Facebook and Instagram @SupportESCO.
