We want to thank all of our wonderful students for their spirit of giving! We collected over 3,000 food and hygiene item for Killarney Elementary school. Due to reaching our goal, we will be celebrating with a free dress down day on Tuesday, November 27th. Our students did earn this dress down day, however if anyone is interested in making a $2 donation on that day it will go to the 2018 Angel Tree Program care of the Herbert Family.
