We hope everyone had an enjoyable Thanksgiving!

Thank you to the many families who joined us for the Hubbard Woods Book Fair. We sold a record amount of books and all of it will be used to improve our RC!

We'd also like to thank the families who cleared their shelves and donated books to Bernie's Book Bank. Thanks to your generosity we were able to donate about 2,000 books!

Be sure to mark your calendars for the Candy Cane Hunt & Hot Cocoa event on December 1 and the Winter Sing on December 20.

We look forward to enjoying these school festivities with you!
