Dear Parents and 8th Graders,
I hope this week away from the school routine brings a little
rest and relaxation your way. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your
family. I'm praying your family stays healthy during these
next few weeks.
This year our Christmas celebration in the middle
school will look a little different. Instead of
having Secret Angels, we are going to have a pretty normal
Christmas gift exchange. If your child wants to participate
they should bring in a gift in the price range of $5-$7. Boys
should bring in a gift for a boy and girls a gift for a girl.
If your child brings a gift, they will go home with a gift.
Our gift exchange will take place on December 22, but I am asking
that all gifts are brought to school by Friday, December 18.
