If you are not committed to bring in any of the above items and would like to contribute candy canes or other treats please feel free to send these in as well on December 19th.
You should have received an email confirming the above contributions (cupcakes, napkins, chips) for our team. Please make sure these items are delivered to Mrs. Pavese's room, regardless of homeroom, no later than Friday morning at 8:00 a.m., December 19th.
Thanks again and we appreciate your generosity.
If your child owes books to the media center presently or from previous schools they will not be able to attend the dance on December 12th and other events until the fine and/or book is returned.
Also, if you are out and about at any used book stores and find copies we would love for a donation of these. The books we currently have are in pretty sad condition.
Mrs. Pavese and Mrs. Canerday would be eternally grateful!
