Student Council is leading the charge for a Christmas fundraiser in which our entire school is adopting children in need and providing gifts for them this year. The event begins now and ends 12/9. (See link below for more info and a short video about the fundraiser.)
Fourth grade students are sponsoring and collecting gifts for a four month old girl. We are looking to collect size 2/3 diapers, clothes size 6-9 months and baby toys. Please do not wrap the items. All items need to be new, not used. Gift cards or cash donations are accepted as well. Any questions, please contact Ms. Rooney, Ms. Cross, or Mrs. Jones.
