Week of December 2-6, 2019
A Note From Mrs. Garrison
Mark your calendars now for our Annual Interfaith Holiday Food Drive and first-ever PTO Holiday Jingle Jam on Friday, December 13th. During specials, each grade level will participate in the food drive and then celebrate the holiday season with fun activities. Our PTO will have an inflatable obstacle course, slide, holiday themed games, activities, and milk and cookies for each child. We will need volunteers and will send a link out on December 2nd.
During this month of gratitude, I want to thank each of you for your love and support of our teachers and school. I hope you enjoy Thanksgiving Break with family and friends.
