Sussex Avenue HSA Weekly Bulletin:

Monday will be an "A" day
A note from our Co-Presidents

This week is our holiday store! Students will have an opportunity to shop for family and friends on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. We are looking for shopping assistants, cashiers and wrappers. We especially need help during our Tuesday 9:30am to 12:30pm and Wednesday 11:00am to 3:00pm shifts. Even if you can only come for part of a shift we would love to have you! Please see below for our volunteer sign up.

Thank you to Michelle Rosenfeld and Rachel Flynn for organizing and distributing our fall fundraiser orders last week. Orders went home with the children on Friday. Please contact Charleston Wrap directly if there are any issues with your order.

Reminder that Monday will be a 4 hour and 20 minute day for conferences. Picture makeups will be Tuesday.
Have a great week!
