Christmas Cheer

With the Christmas season fast approaching, we would like to spread our generosity and support to families who are in need. We will be collecting gently used coats, snow pants, hats, mittens and scarves for both children and adults through a Coat Drive. We will also be collecting new and unwrapped toys, books and/or games through a Toy Drive. Please send any of these items to school with your child to support our Coat Drive and Toy Drive this Christmas season. Our final day of collecting items will be Friday, December 14th, 2018.
