COMMUNITY

It's beginning to look a lot like... THANKSGIVING! Check out these adorable PK4 Native American Indians at their Thanksgiving Feast and program last Thursday!


SPIRITUALITY

This is a BIG WEEK at All Saints! Not only are we enjoying a fabulous Book Fair, but we are also focusing on two different collections serving our greater community. Homeroom teachers have been accepting both FOOD DONATIONS and WINTER CLOTHING DONATIONS. The food collected by our students will help stock the Thanksgiving Store sponsored by Some Other Place. The food drive ends this Friday, November 22nd at 8:00 AM. The grade with the most donations will enjoy a pizza party for lunch on Tuesday, November 26th before we break for the Thanksgiving holiday. Winter clothing donations will be accepted until Thursday, November 21st, when they will be delivered to Some Other Place, as well. Thank you for being a community of GIVING this week... Giving your volunteer time to the Book Fair, and giving your FOOD and WINTER CLOTHING donations to Some Other Place! We are a community of "Saints Serving Saints!"
