Our next Other’s First lunchtime activity benefits Monument Crisis Center, a local center providing food, education and referrals to create stable families. We will be collecting toiletries and assemble bags for low income individuals and families in the community.

Please dig through your bathroom cabinets and donate all of those travel samples that have been taking up space. Core items needed are toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner and body soap/gel. Mouthwash, razors, deodorants and body lotions are also welcome. Collection bins will be set up in the office starting this week.

 

Knit-A-Square Project for Africa, Wednesdays, Room 33 (Ms. Hodder's room)
Come join us on Wednesdays at lunch in room 33 for a special knitting project. Students will be making 8' x 8' squares that will be sent to Africa and turned into blankets for abandoned orphans. Don't know how to knit? It's easy. Mrs. Hodder and her helpers will show you the basics. This project will be on going throughout the year. We welcome parents to join us. No knitting experience necessary.
