December is a Month of Kindness and Giving at Jane Addams!

Jane Addams will begin collecting canned food items in each classroom for various food pantries. We are looking forward to some friendly competition between classes. If you would like you may begin sending in items December 5th until December 19th.

Please do not forget the last day of school prior to Winter Break is December 21st. The Jane Addams school office is closed when the District is closed. Students return to school on January 9, 2023.
