December 4th-8th


Thank you to those of you who already have signed up! For those that haven't....

We have some projects that we will be working on in the month of December. I've created a sign-up, if you would like to donate items. We would appreciate having the items before December 8th, if possible. Thank you for your help and generosity!

Gift Idea for Your Kiddos

If you are looking for a great gift idea for your kiddos, I will be sending home some Scholastic Book order forms this week. You can order online by Friday morning, and let me know by email that you want it to be a secret. I can place your order in the office for pickup or send it home in a brown paper bag. Just a thought.
