*** Dinner with Santa is only TEN days away! Please take a look at the sign-up sheets in the main hallway and sign-up for a time to help. If you’ve got baking skills or are crafty, please contribute some festive baked goods to add to our bake sale or homemade crafts to sell at the event! We would greatly appreciate your contribution!! Both items can be dropped off Friday December 1st after dropping off children at school. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me!
Please come for fun, and fellowship, and to help!
Thanksgiving Food Drive a Wonderful Success!
Last year, as a school community, we collected over 121 lbs. of non-perishable food items during our Thanksgiving Food Drive.
This year, we collected 205 lbs. of food!… and a $25.00 donation. Thank you to all our school families for your help in providing food for those in need in the community.
Please see a couple of group photos below. More photos can be found on our school Facebook page.
For families whose child(ren) will participate in Destination Imagination:
DI – 2018 Challenge Previews are available at this web address. We will need to have the teams make their choices before Christmas: https://www.destinationimagination.org/challenge-program/2017-18-challenge-previews/
Mardi Gras 2018 is February 10th, just about 2 ½ months away. The Mardi Gras Committee needs more members to assist with the planning of this large event. We will soon be starting to meet. The first thing we will be working on is deciding on our large presale raffle items. If you know a business or individual who would be willing to donate a large item or if you would like to join this fun team please contact Norlene at email@example.com or 213-4951.
We will have Wreath Sale financial results finalized after the Thanksgiving break. Thanks to everyone for helping. The net numbers look very good, approximately $11,500!
***We would like to remind all parents and committee chairs: If you need help with publicity (flyers, Facebook, website) for fundraisers, fun nights, school programs, etc., you can contact John Bleskacek for assistance. His email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. John also takes care of updates to our school website and Facebook page. We definitely thank him for his wonderful “behind the scenes” support!
