Good Deed of the Month
In October, we are proud to partner with The Loukoumi Make a Difference Foundation and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in our Caring Cards campaign! The Loukoumi Foundation rallies over 100,000 kids each year to make caring cards for patients at St. Jude. In 2016, the project was taken a step further as many groups also collected $1 donations for St. Jude from the students. This year, we will work together to unite students within our school and across the country to participate and fund a literacy program and treatment room at St. Jude!
Please save the date for our annual Harvest Festival on Saturday, October 20th, 12:30 – 2:00 pm
We would like to provide some helpful information and important reminders well in advance of our Halloween Parade. As always, thank you for your continued support and cooperation!
