Christmas Spirit

Tis the season to be giving!

Our school has adopted a family this Christmas season.  The family was carefully selected and screened by Father Jim Rouse, St. Jude's Ministry.  If you would like to help this family in need, please select an "ornament" from the tree on the office window.  The gifts will be collected on December 19th.  Your present may be wrapped or put in a gift bag.  Please securely attach the ornament so we are sure who the lucky recipient is!  If you have any questions, please contact Cathy Guadagni.  Thank you for your generosity!!
