- Our Silent Auction is going on now through March 3rd. We are raising money for a 42 foot shade structure for our playground. We have many amazing items. Check them out and put in a bid.
- In addition to the silent auction, we are putting together grade level baskets to be raffled off. Please remember to turn in all raffle basket donations by TOMORROW, February 24th. We are so thankful for so many families signing up to donate, but we still haven't received many of the items. So, if you signed up, please send your item in by Friday. There is a box in the front office to place donated items. Thank you so much to all of those who have contributed so far!
- We are also in need of volunteers to help with the dance. Sign up here to help:
The last chance to donate to Our Wake Up and Read book drive will be this Friday, February 24th. We are collecting new and gently used books to donate. Wake Up and Read accepts books for any age, including baby and toddler books.
We are restocking the teacher's lounge and would love your help. Please sign up here for items to send in:
Save the date! We will be having a Spirit Night at Urban Air on March 9th from 4:00-8:00pm. A flyer will be coming home soon with more information!
