- Once again we are participating in the Scholastic Pajama Drive. With your past help, we have donated more than 100 pairs of new pajamas during the last three years to a local shelter for women & children who are victims of domestic abuse as well as Little Flower Children Services. For every new pair of pajamas we donate, Scholastic matches the pajamas with a book for the children. Please consider donating to this worthy cause. New pajamas of any size will be accepted through 12/ 5. Thank you.
- Ms. Sheri will be out from 12/4-12/10. I’m going to visit my 97-year-old grandma in Florida. I haven’t seen her since December 2019. My aunt is traveling & doesn’t want to leave her alone so it was a good opportunity for me to visit. Miss Faryaal & Ms. Joyce will be here. The children will be in good, capable hands!
