  • Penny Drive ends 12/22/17:  Mrs. Flood has put our school in touch with Pennies for Patients benefitting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The idea is for the children in K-3 to come home from school with little boxes that they will collect pennies in. There is also an online fundraising component if parents wish to go in that direction too, details were on the flier that came home with the collection box.
    • Over 300 schools participate in this charity drive and now our school is one of them! Our school-wide goal is $750. The drive will run until 12/22/17.   We hope that all of the kids participate so they can see just how far one small penny can go towards helping other sick kids.
