6th Grade Service Project 
The 6th grade will be completing their final service project for the year.  This project benefits the Chester County Women's Center, in particular struggling mothers and mothers in crisis. Your child will be coming home with an empty bottle next week and we are asking that the student fill it with loose change/cash.  We are also accepting diapers, formula, and new items for infants.  It is a great way to honor Mary and all mothers in the month of May. As always we thank you for your support and generosity.
~ Mrs. Klunk and the 6th Grade
