Shoe Drive Underway!

After six weeks, we have collected 150 bags
- we are halfway!

We are hoping to collect 7,500 pairs of shoes (300 bags). That amounts to about 25 pairs of shoes per family. Outside of our own closets, let's ask our relatives, friends, and neighbors. It is for a good cause and it is a lot less awkward than selling them magazines
.

Parents and students can drop off bags of shoes in the white collection boxes at:
  • Elementary Campus Office
  • JH/SH Campus Front and Athletic Lobbies
This program runs until December 12.

JH/SH Principal's Panel

Junior and Senior High Parents,

The purpose of the panel is twofold:  
1) to make the principal aware of areas of concern within the parent body, and 
2) to strengthen the relationship between the JH/SH school administration and teachers and the parents.  
 
We publish the members of the Principal Panel on the website for parents to e-mail the members that represent their grade with questions or concerns. Their questions can be brought to the principal during one of these meetings. Mrs. Stone asks that these questions be submitted to her a week prior to the meeting so she can have a chance to answer the question/concern
