Holiday Baskets &

Gift Cards NEEDED

Do you have holiday baskets lying about, taking up room, annoying you? The PTO will be happy to take it off your hands! Just bring the empty basket to the school front office!

Also, if you have any gift cards that you would be willing to donate to the PTO right now would be the perfect time to do so!

We'll make good use of the baskets and gift cards in our upcoming Gala & Silent Auction.

A message from Ms Bonnette

From our own principal, "a huge thank you for the incredibly positive community response for the two Wilson families who were affected by fire."

The families still need the following items: kitchen items (pots and Pans, cooking utensils, small appliances) and beds (2 twin for children and 1 adult).

If anyone has something in a garage or storage unit, please consider donating!

As usual, contact the school if you have any comments and/or questions.
