Baby Bundles Donation Drive

Please join us in supporting Baby Bundles, an organization in the local Charlotte area that provides baby essentials to families with financial needs, helping them get a positive start with their baby.

Selwyn is hosting a donation drive of NEW baby items this week, April 26 - April 30 to collect baby essentials. Some examples of items that are of greatest need are: newborn outfits, pajamas, onesies, baby books and small developmental toys. Please send in with your child for collection Monday through Friday of this week!

This drive is in conjunction with the fourth and fifth grade service project that will be completed Friday, April 30. Our fourth and fifth graders will make over 100 baby blankets to be donated to Baby Bundles!
Bike to School Day

Join students, families and school leaders around the country on Tuesday, May 4 to celebrate the benefits of biking/walking to school.

This is a global event that involves communities from more than 40 countries walking and biking to school on the same day. Since we are not in-person on May 5, Selwyn is biking on May 4. It has become part of a movement for year-round safe routes to school and a celebration – with record breaking participation!

National Bike to School Day provides an opportunity for schools across the country to celebrate the joy and independence of walking and biking to school. It brings communities and schools together for a common purpose. Most of all, it's a lot of fun!
