Thank you to all those who purchased coffee and wreaths to support the upcoming 8th Grade Field trip! With your support, we hope every student is able to attend. A special thank you to Elvia & Michael Heneghan for not only organizing the wreath and coffee sales but also picking up the wreaths (from Michigan!) and distributing all items at the Maker Fair.
There are two more activities this week for the 8th Grade students. A photo booth on Thursday, December 12 and the Holiday Dance on Friday, December 13. Additional details can be found in this flyer and in student folders.
Thank you so much to the Maker Fair team who made the event a great success! The Cake Walk and Giving Tree were once again enjoyed by all and we had an impressive group of vendors at the show. We love seeing so many kids, families, teachers, and community members at the school last weekend. A special thank you to our Book Fair team who made sure students and staff could receive a new book or two this year.
The event would not be possible without all of the volunteers who took an hour or two out of their day to help with both the Book Fair and the Maker Fair.
The Waters Threadless shop is open for business. Check out our first offerings and pick up some last-minute gifts! Be sure to check back as we add new inventory. Happy Shopping!
