Reminders for the week


  • There is an early dismissal on Thursday this week. Please plan accordingly for your child to go home.
  • Don't forget this week is the Stuffed Animal Drive.
  • We are getting to that time of year where sicknesses are going around which also means we are starting to get low on a few things. If at any time, you would like to donate supplies to our class, it would be greatly appreciated. Here are a few things we are getting low on: Kleenex, hand sanitizer, Clorox wipes, and extra snacks for the room.

The Evergiving Tree

Dear Uthoff Valley Families,


Uthoff Valley is sponsoring our “Evergiving” tree again this year to help provide gifts and other essentials to some of our families in our school who are facing some difficult challenges. Our goal is to provide the receiving family two outfits, PJ’s, undergarments and a couple of toys (less than $25.00) for each child under the age of 18. We are also hoping to provide the family other necessities such as bedding and kitchen items, if needed, and gift cards for groceries. But we need your help….if your family would like to participate, please take a tag from the tree in the Rotunda. The “Evergiving” tree will be available at the Winter Wonderfest on Friday, Dec. 4th, Thank you so much for your willingness to help others in need this year.
