Holiday Program:  Please mark your calendars for Tuesday, December 5.  This will be our annual holiday program for the whole school.  It is held at Rock Creek Middle School.  We will put out invitations soon.  This is always a super fun night and we hope to see you all there!

Operation Santa Barrel:  We will have the barrel in the office again this year for toy and food donations.  It will be dropped off on November 22 and picked back up mid December.  The food and toys are distributed to local families to help them have a happy holiday.  We always fill the barrel up and hope to do so again this year!  

High Chairs:  If anyone has any high chairs they are no longer using and would like to donate to a good cause we would love them.  We have a full baby room and we go through them so quickly!  If you have questions please see Ann in the infant room.
