Advent Service Project
Our Student Council has planned a toy drive for our Advent service project. All toys will be donated to
the Child Life Program at Sutter hospital in honor of Mrs. Smith’s niece, Rosie. Her family has been a part of this toy
drive for many years and it holds a special place in our hearts. Please keep this in mind if you do any
shopping over break as it’s a perfect time to grab an extra toy or two for the toy drive.
Extension is in need of snacks and water when we return from Thanksgiving break. Also, in great news,
Mrs. Joseph will not be leaving after all. We are blessed she will be a part of our staff until June!
PLEASE NOTE: Extension will not be available on the afternoon of December 16th. All students should
be picked up at 12:15 p.m. Morning extension will still be offered on this day.
I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving! I hope your break is filled with family, friends, and grateful
hearts. I am grateful for our wonderful community and for your support!
