PJ Day!

Thank you for the generous outpouring of support for First Friday! Last week, we collected 112 pairs of PJs and donations to purchase 63 more, totaling 175 pairs of pajamas. Our donations will be combined with books donated by Scholastic and distributed to children in a foster home, orphanage, or shelter setting. Sweet dreams!

If your family chose a project from our Christmas tree, please remember these dates!


Stuff-a-Stocking: All stuffed stockings should be turned into the office by Wednesday, Dec. 17. The Student Advisory Council will be passing them out to families at the CCS Food Pantry on Dec. 18.
