VETERAN'S DAY COLLECTION - NOVEMBER 8TH - 12TH

Our Veteran's Day collection recipient this year is Operation Support Our Troops-America. They are located in Naperville, IL.


Their mission is to support the morale and well-being of American forces by providing comfort, resources and education to them and their families both while they are deployed in harm’s way and after their return. As a volunteer based non-profit organization, they provide the opportunity for our community members to express their appreciation and offer support for our troops.


We'll be collecting canned goods and toiletries for our service members beginning Monday, November 8th - Friday, November 12th. Collection boxes will be outside the office and in the foyer.

Let Us Introduce You To: Our LMC Director and LMC Teaching Assistant

Our LMC is a FUN place to be with this "dynamic duo" leading the way! Mrs. Miklautsch, our LMC Director and Mrs. Nix, our LMC TA have created an incredible place where books come alive and technology is fun!

Mrs. Miklautsch loves seeing all the Ivy Eagles each week and says that the most popular books in the LMC continue to be Harry Potter, Smile, Sisters and Elephant and Piggy! Some things never go out of style!

Most of you know Mrs. Nix from the Ivy Hill neighborhood where she has raised 5 great boys that attended Ivy Hill School! She loves helping kids find the perfect book to read and says that "graphic novels" are a big favorite. This month is "NO Graphics NOvember" in hopes that kids will explore different kinds of books!
