Do You Have Talent?
It's hard to believe but the Talent Show is just around the corner on February 16!  We are having talent show tryouts after school on Wednesday, January 25 and Thursday, January 26.  If you have a talent you would like to share, please consider trying out.  Sign up sheets will be outside Mrs. Shoaf's classroom.  Remember that acts should be about 2 minutes in length.

We will be having two shows on Thursday, February 16 at 2:00 and 6:30 pm.  Family and friends are welcome to join us for the shows.  Participation in The Talent Show is open to ELC through Eighth Grade.  
Cleaning Closets?
Thank you for bringing in your donations for the Savers Donation Drive.   We will be collecting items for one more week. Please have items to school by Friday, January 27, 3:00 pm. It is amazing to see much we have collected so far! Thank you so much for your generosity and for supporting our school in this way. Please remember to turn in reward slips to your child's teacher or attach them to your bags. If you need more slips please ask your child's teacher.  Students get a prize for each bag or box that they bring in.  I will be collecting the slips during the week of January 30. Prizes will be awarded the first few weeks of February. I have prizes for ELC-8th grade. The class that brings in the most bags/boxes will be awarded with a special Ice Cream party. 

Please contact Adrienne Olsen if you have questions.
