Week of October 22 - 26

PARKING LOT CLOSURE - Church Lot Closed October 22-26

Please note: the church parking lot will be closed for resurfacing the week of October 22-26. Please plan accordingly as this will create some parking and traffic issues during drop off and pick up times. Our school parking lot will remain closed to cars to allow for commercial day care and school buses to enter and exit the school lots. Please plan to arrive a little early if you want to park and walk your student onto the school grounds. Be mindful of neighbors driveways and please do not park too close to our crosswalks. Demonstrate patience and grace during this temporary inconvenience. Consider finding a spot on a neighboring street where your student can meet you to help with the traffic that is immediately in front of the school. PLEASE drive slowly, cautiously and without distractions so we can keep all students and staff safe. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Sweet Dreams - Helping others

This fall we have a student that would like to bring awareness to children that are experiencing a life-threatening disease. Fostering awareness and desire to help others builds leadership in our students. Through the organization Sweet Dreams Foundation*, we are reaching out to raise money to donate towards the creation of a dream bedroom for a child experiencing a life-threatening disease. Kids with life-threatening illness have to spend a lot of time in their bedrooms and the goal is to create a space that is comforting and fun.

Sweet Dreams mission is:

“Improve the quality of life for children who have been diagnosed with a life threatening disease through the creation of their Dream bedroom.”

Our students want to help out make a child smile. Our goal is to raise money through Sweet Dreams so they can buy supplies to help create a dream bedroom for a child. 100% of what we collect will go towards the cost of developing a dream bedroom for a child in need. A fund-raising jar will be in every classroom. Bring in your loose change or any contribution you wish to make from October 22 - November 14 and place it in the jar.

This is the season of thanksgiving, and a great opportunity to give back to bring a smile to a child in need. For more information visit the information table about Sweet Dreams at our Harvest Carnival.
