Thank you to PTA for providing goodie bags for our honor roll students!

The Helping Hands Gift Drive helps meet the needs of families in our mountain community and makes the lessons on compassion and empathy that our students has been focusing on in Advise classes even more meaningful. Students and family members may take a mitten from the snowman in the school lobby. Each mitten has a gifting suggestion for a specific, anonymous student or community member in need. Make your selection and provide a new, unwrapped gift now through December 18th.

The School Store Holiday Shop will be open December 19, 20, and 21 during lunches. The Holiday Shop provides an opportunity for the students to buy gifts for their friends & family. All items are priced at $5 or less.

If you are interested in helping to plan the 8th Grade Continuation celebration in May, please email Aimee at Subcommittee meetings will be happening soon to organize this important milestone event!
