It was so sweet to hear children telling their Nana's and Papa's thank you along with hugs and kisses goodbye! What wonderful memories for the young and older! Thank you for inviting your special guests to these events!

COLLECTING OLD SHOES: 5th Grade Spring Service Project
Our 5th-grade spring service project is to collect old shoes. So clean out your closets and start looking under your beds for gently used shoes and turn them in to your child’s teacher or one of our collection boxes in the halls. Every pair you recycle means extra funds for CampMates, less landfill waste and the potential to connect us to a SoleMate! We are collecting shoes through the end of the school year.
