Super Miles Day
Tuesday, Nov. 26th, 8:30am-3:30pm
15 Thelma Drive
Did you know that we have our very own superhero in Hope Valley School? “Super Miles” as he is known to family and friends has bravely fought liver cancer for three years. Miles received a liver transplant in 2017 and has since undergone chemotherapy and other surgeries to battle his cancer. After exhausting all conventional treatments, Miles was recently granted a new clinical trial drug. He is the first child in the world to trial this. He, and his amazing family, could really use the love and support of our Chariho community as he ventures into the unknown. Throughout all of his treatments and hospital stays Miles remains a silly, beautiful boy! His smile melts the hearts of everyone he meets. He teaches us every day about positivity and seeing the good in every moment. Every time Miles has a procedure or is awaiting results, he and his loved ones wear green to show support.
Let’s go the extra mile for Miles and dress in green on Tuesday, November 26! Use #gogreen4Miles so he can see your pictures!
Miles parents asked that any donations from the day go to The Hasbro Tomorrow Fund, an organization that supports pediatric cancer patients and their families. Containers will be set up in the hallway across from the main office for your child to drop off any spare change. https://www.tomorrowfund.org/

Online Book Party
The PTO is “hosting” an online book party with Usborne Books and More (UBAM). All host rewards will go back to the school for Mrs Ward (our librarian) and Mrs Pastore (our reading specialist) to determine what the school’s needs are. If the “party” reaches $250 in sales the school will get HALF of the total sales worth of free products!!!
Over the next couple of weeks our consultant Joyce will be highlighting some of the many products available. Please share our event and link and encourage friends and family to browse the catalog. There is something for everyone and more than just books too!!!!
The party will close on December 11th so that all orders can be processed and shipped directly to your door in plenty of time for the holidays.
If you need help with anything, feel free to reach out to Joyce and she will be happy to assist.
