12/12/16 Limo lunch – Monday (keep an eye out for the sign-up genius to volunteer and/or ride with your child) 

12/15 & 12/16 Santa Shoppe --- a fun way to let the kids pick out a small gift for someone they love. Each child will be given a few “club bucks” to spend and most gifts range from .50- $2. It allows the students to create a list, budget, shop at school, pick an item themselves and practice working with money. This is not a fundraising activity, but more of a fun event for the students around the holiday time. Stay tuned for more information to be sent home with your child next week. 

Additional FUN-draiser Events will be set up after Jan 1 – Spring:
Walking Field Trip for top classes – Sullivan (5th)/Olstad (1st) - scheduling in spring
