A Note From Mrs. Donnell
With the changing weather be aware that we will encourage outdoor recess as often as possible, so please make sure your student(s) have the appropriate outerwear for cool/cold weather. If they don’t wear a coat/hat/gloves on a regular basis, then feel free to bring those items in and hang them on their hooks for use at school. Medical professional and educators alike agree that students need the fresh air and the play time for better health and learning. Our guidelines will be published in the newsletter throughout the winter season.
Don’t forget to change back your clocks this weekend! Welcome to November. We have lots of exciting things coming up between now and the end of the year. Keep your eyes and ears open and make sure that you are checking your email, Facebook and Remind.

- Provides a hands-on missions project without the cost of a mission trip.
- Is fun for everyone!
- Emphasizes the power of prayer as each person who sends a shoebox gift depends on God to work a miracle through this simple act of kindness.
- Is a great family activity.
- Helps you learn and/or teach about giving.
- Teaches you to think globally, but also participate personally, by sending a shoebox gift to a child.
- Allows you to reach needy children in a personal way by including a letter and photo in your shoebox gift.
- Is a great activity for individuals and families
