Donations for the Nurse’s Office – 
The nurse's office is looking for donations of new socks and underwear for when children have accidents. If you are able to help, please bring the items directly to the nurse's office, or send them in with your child, along with a note "to nurse." Thank you

Food Drive – 
The PTO is working with the several local organizations to collect non-perishable items. We donated a LOT in the first week (probably 3-4 grocery carts' worth!) and they were so grateful. We are still collecting for another week, until Friday, February 8, so people can keep the donations coming! Below is the link to more information.
