  • The Christmas Giving Tree

    There are often a number of people in need at this time of year and many school families have offered assistance to those in need, and one wonderful way to do this is to support our Christmas Giving Tree.  Once again we will be collecting food, gift items and gift cards for St. Vincent de Paul to add to their Christmas hampers, and the need is greater than every this year.  While we will have a Christmas tree in the front hallway, we will once again be using an electronic sign up platform for parents to select an item or two to purchase for those less fortunate.  The link to the electronic sign up will be emailed to parents early next week, all items must be brought into school by December 15th.  Using the same process as when we have parents sign up for conferences, you will simply select the item you would like to purchase, and if you want to select another item you simply have to add another item.  Once you have purchased your item(s), your child may bring them to the school in the morning and place them in the collection bins outside of the Library, and your child will be given an ornament to place on the Christmas tree.  Any gift cards that are purchased should be brought directly to the office by your child. 

    We thank you for any and all donations you are able to make to support this very worthy cause.

  • Monitor the Website Carefully
