CONGRATS TO THE STUDENT COUNCIL WINNERS! Congrats to President Matthew Thomas, Vice-President Christian Slavin, Treasurer Bella Capone, Secretary Colleen Bashew, as well as all the classroom representatives! All the candidates should be proud of themselves – it takes a lot of courage to run for a position, decide on a “platform,” and speak in front of your classmates… way to go!
HAPPENING NOW: Holiday Hollow Volunteer Sign-Ups are here! Holiday Hollow is schedule for the week JUST AFTER THANKSGIVING break, from 11/30-12/3 (Monday to Thursday) on the Gym Stage. The kids love to shop for their families, but we can’t run this event without a team of parent volunteers to set up/clean up, assist shoppers and wrap gifts.Even signing up for an hour or two helps! Friendly reminder that volunteers must have their clearances. Questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org
