Backpacks for kids

Mrs. Iwanski is collecting used or new backpacks to be sent to the Dominican Republic this summer to provide kids the supplies needed at a growing school. If you have a backpack (or 2) to donate, please drop it off at either office and Mrs. Iwanski will collect them and direct them to the proper channels to have them shipped. Deadline for donating backpacks is Wednesday, June 7th, our last day of school. Here is a link with more information.
