SOCKTOBER SUCCESS! 1200 pairs donated!
HOLIDAY SHOP NOVEMBER 29 & 30
We need your help! We rely on parent volunteers to help our shop co-chairs (Sue Wilson and Mariana Del Rio) host a fun and successful shopping experience for the kids. Parent volunteers help the kids select budget-appropriate items, help them pay and get correct change, and wrap gifts so they come home a surprise.
Please sign up to join us for this fun holiday event.
Look for more information in your red folder next week. You and your kid(s) will have the opportunity set budgets for each person on their list items range in price from $0.25 to $13.00.

ATHENS HIGH SCHOOL CRAFT SHOW
Mr. Binford will be there with his beautiful woodworking!
I am really excited and looking forward to continuing the process and staying involved to be part of and support decisions that affect our school.
A HUGE shout out to ALISON HENDRY. Mrs. Hendry served as our liaison with me for an entire school year last year, as well as this fall. She gave much of her time and talents to support and teach our community. Thanks, Alison, for all you did and will still do!
Mrs. Phillips and Mrs. West we also thank you. You were also instrumental in this process and we are grateful!!!
Each of these 3 parents represented our community beautifully. Not a surprise, we have the best parents out there. :)
