K8 Weekly Update 12/13/21

Good morning,

It’s hard to believe that this is the last week of school for 2021 and that we have made it through half of the school year!  Just a reminder that Friday is an early release day. We will dismiss at 11:30 am. Please arrive on time since the afterschool program will not be in session. 
Here are this week’s updates and reminders:
1. Donations for Needy Families: Our number of needy families increases each year as our population increases. If you would like to donate a gift card for those in need, please drop it off at K-8 and no later than December 15th. Walmart and Target gift cards are best so that families can purchase food, clothing and/or gifts. Thank you for your generosity. If you are in need and would like to be included, please email me directly. Your information will be kept confidential.   Please mark the amount on the gift cards.
2. Spirit Week: The flyer is attached!

34-H Pet Drive: ERA’s elementary 4-H club will be holding a pet drive from December 4-17. We will be collecting used bath towels, used blankets, and pet food to donate to a local veterinarian office and animal shelter. Donations will be collected in the K-8 main office. Thank you for your support!
4. Board of Directors Meeting:Our December meeting will be held on Tuesday, Dec 14, 2021, from 5:00pm-6:00pm. It will be over Zoom.
