Kindess Adventure Assembly and Jewelry
We will continue to sell the Kindess Adventure jewelry through December 6th.  The money received from the jewelry helps pay for the Kindness adventure assembly at a different school.   Part of the profits go to the Kenyan artisans and part go to help build fresh water wells in Kenya. Kids can bring in their order forms and they will be called into the office during the day, or they can come to the office at the end of the day to purchase the jewelry.
Winter Break Food Boxes
Over Winter break, we would like to help support families with food boxes consisting of non-perishable items and items such as milk and eggs. More information will be coming soon as to how to help for this. Please let the office know, if your family could benefit from a food box over winter break.
