Welcome Back to School!

Coats for the Cold Collection

Coats for the Cold is a community organization that provides new and used coats for those who cannot afford them. Families who want to donate clean coats (gently used or new) can bring them to school. A “Coats for the Cold” collection barrel is on the office porch throughout the month of January. For more info visit: www.coatsforthecold.org.

Hobby & Collection Day, Wednesday, Jan. 16

On Hobby & Collections Day students can share about themselves and their interests. Students are encouraged to bring in objects that are representative of their hobby (knitting, origami, soccer, reading mysteries, etc.) or collections (seashells, rocks, bottle caps, etc.) Please remember that our school downplays pop culture. Talk to your child’s teacher if you have any questions about this special sharing day or the particulars of your child’s sharing.
