THANK YOU to all of our parent volunteers that helped with holiday parties. The weather outside was frightful... but these parties were sure delightful!
It didn't rain on our parade! THANK YOU to all who participated in our Toys for Tots toy drive. Students collected over 1500 toys and earned a dress down day! Even though it was grey and rainy outside, students at our holiday assembly were full of cheer as we celebrated the amazing 'spirit of giving' our students showed during this fundraising event.
Grade 3 students participated in an annual outreach called “Brady’s Stocking” in honor of our great friend Brady who is a therapy dog (front center of the picture). All of the gifts went to foster, care for, and to rescue labrador retrievers by Labrador Retriever Rescue of Central Florida who save between 700 and 800 retrievers every year.
Grade 2 students worked together to pack food bags for the homeless communities in Bithlo, Florida.
