Kindergarten's will have their night Dec 11 and the other grades will be divided up on Dec 12 with limited attendance again.  There will be a dress rehearsal on the 12th in the afternoon for anyone wanting to bring the whole family.

It's that time of the year again.  If you are looking to buy Gift Cards for someone or would like to support the Parent Association in purchasing books for the Learning Commons than this is the fundraiser for you.
Ask your friends and neighbors if they would like to purchase gift cards to use for their everyday purchases - groceries, coffee, eating out.  They may also be looking to get a gift for someone and are not sure where to go. You could be their answer - no malls, no stress.

Here is the Fundscrip order form (attached) and the cover letter (attached) outlining the instructions on how to purchase.  Just make sure you get them all back in before November 19.  Pick up Dec 6 (4-8) and Dec 7 (8-1).

Thank you,
