Also, classes will be competing for the most donors to win a classroom party (Provided by Carter BloodCare for the winning homeroom class). Donors will sign in at the drive, indicating which student they are donating for. Thank you for your participation!

Spring Cleaning Donations

We are implementing flex seating in our classes after STAAR. If you have any furniture you would like rid of and can donate that would be greatly appreciated.

EXAMPLES: Coffee tables are great for leaners who like sitting on floor to work with a hard surface, accent chairs, stools, lap desks, vinyl beanbags, etc...

Thank you in advance -If unsure take a picture and send it to us.
