      • Donations are going to Manna House (supports families struggling financially), Freedom House (supports victims of domestic abuse), and Grace House (supports unplanned pregnancies and single mothers) 

      • Attached to this email is a list of donations suggested by class 

    • Operation Christmas Child Uniform Passes are now ON SALE! 

      • Each year our school packs over 200 shoeboxes full of toys, books and gifts for children all around the world. Included in this gift is a booklet explaining who Jesus is. 

      • While the toys, books, hygiene supplies and other items we collect are all a vital part of Operation Christmas Child, raising funds to ship the boxes overseas is no less important. It costs $9 to ship each box. We are selling uniform passes for $5 each to help cover these shipping costs.

      • A uniform pass can be turned in to your child’s teacher on a day that a student desires to dress in clothing other than a uniform.  Clothes must still abide by school guidelines, be appropriate length, no rips, no leggings, etc.
