    1. Halloween Candy Drive - Hazel Wolf will be participating in a Halloween Candy Drive for Camp Murray soldiers!

Drop-off unwanted, sealed candy in the donation bin in the front office starting November 1st, and ending November 12th. Candy is being picked up on November 13th. Please refrain from donating any foil/paper wrapped candies or homemade treats. This has to be able to maintain freshness on its journey overseas in care packages. 

     

    1. iPad Donations – We are in need of iPads so that we can increase the number classes have for student work.  If you have one sitting around the house which nobody uses anymore, consider donating to the school.  These need to be in working condition, and only actual iPads  

     

    1. Playground Partners 4th and 5th graders - We started anew program this year called Playground Partners where 4th and 5th graders are volunteering to help at K-2 lunch recesses.  The 4th and 5th graders are taking a leadership role helping in the different areas on the playground.  They are leading fun games on the field, helping students with solving problems, talking with students who are alone and connecting them with other students or games.  This was our first week helping at recess and we had anywhere from 50-100 students playing different tag, and sport games.  The students are really excited and are looking forward to more fun on the playground.  If any parents would like to help with this program please let me know.
