  Important message from
Olivia Barber,
8th grade:

      I recently learned that teens often get overlooked in traditional toy drives, and decided to start a Teen Gift Drive for my 8th grade service project. (Because teens are moody enough without getting gypped at Christmas). I have  partnered with The Jonnycake Center and The Narragansett Housing Authority, and have made an Amazon wish list and items can be purchased from the list and drop shipped right to me at school.  Or if you would rather purchase a gift locally that would be great too. Items can be sent into the office with my name on them. Just click on the link below to see the list. Or go to and search for Teens for teens RI wishlist

 Please consider buying a gift for a needy teen This Holiday season.

Thank you, and Happy Holidays !


Family Volunteer Day!
This Saturday 9-12
Please join us THIS Saturday for  FAMILY VOLUNTEER DAY from 9-12  when we begin creating our outdoor classroom. This event is for the WHOLE FAMILY!! The project will include constructing the greenhouse, building and filling garden beds, planting shrubs to support a healthy permaculture for our garden to thrive and making hand print garden stones (for a small donation) to decorate and provide a boarder for the space. Be sure to bring gloves, shovels and wheelbarrows. See the attachments for more details.

For any questions or to RSVP for the event please contact Buff Wessman .
