Thank you to everyone who purchased a poinsettia. Every year, the sale not only provides beautiful gifts and decor, but also an opportunity to raise much needed funds for needs that aren’t in the budget. The $3,000 raised this year will go towards the Shade Project. The main goal is to add more shaded areas throughout our campus while educating our students about sun safety. Phase 1 is to add sun-protective lotion stations throughout campus, as well as some shade structures to the lower school playground. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to become involved in the Parents’ Group.
