Teacher Appreciation Lunch and Bags

Hi families! Even though the staff luncheon is tomorrow, due to shipping delays, and a few more needed items, we are giving the big gift bags for the staff later on this week. If you would like to purchase some things that still remain on the wish list, please do so! Thank you so much to everyone who already donated! Your support is greatly appreciated! Sincerely, Alysha and Kristin
