What a week we have had!  Christmas concerts, celebrations, letters from Santa, a raffle and a dance.  The Because I am a Girl Club raised over $80 to support girls in developing countries.  The Student Leadership group raised over $200 for the people of the Phillipines.  And our students and staff donated several shopping carts full of items for Community Christmas Care.  Thank you, everyone! It was also Mrs. Yates’ last week as she is going on maternity leave.  Mrs. Lindsey Hadfield and Mrs. Ashley Binning will be teaching her class for the rest of the school year.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone!
