More News Bits...

MIDDLE SCHOOL SOCK FUNDRAISER UPDATE
Unfortunately, the time frame for the sock order delivery has been extended much longer than anticipated. It was determined in recent shipment that the quality of the product was very poor; not like the sample the school received. The orders were re-submitted for a higher quality product. We ask for your continued patience as this further extends production time. Thank you for your support of this fundraiser. Questions may be referred to Mrs. Schoepf at kschoepf@goldenrams.com.


PRE-K OPENING

The Highlands Pre-K Counts program for 4-year olds has an opening for one student in the PM session and the waiting list. Contact Jaye Misejka at jmisejka@goldenrams.com or 724-226-2400, ext. 4518.
