Family to Family Giving Tree

The Pleasant Union K-Kids Club is sponsoring a “Family to Family Giving Tree” program for the holidays. If you are interested in participating in this project, please go by the office and choose an apple tag with a gift item on it. Gifts should be wrapped and returned to school with your apple attached no later than December 19th for a child in Tracks 2-4 and December 3rd for a child in Track 1. Track 1 gifts will be received up until the 19th of December but please be mindful that the families will have to come into the school during their track out to receive the presents so be mindful of the original due date.

Thank-you for your generosity, and we hope your holidays are filled with joy and love.
