Gym Furnaces Fundraising Project:
Thanks to everyone who has already supported our fundraiser to replace the three gym furnaces. So far we have pledges and cash for just over $5500 which will almost replace two furnaces. If you haven’t already done so, please consider assisting us in replacing the final furnace so that the heat in the gym can be consistent and adequate. We need a total of $10,000 for the purchase and installation of the three furnaces. Thanks so much for your support.

Quilt Silent Auction: 
At the musical concert on Tuesday evening, June 10, the quilts made by the grade 7 & 8 CTS sewing classes were unveiled and a silent auction was initiated to benefit “A Better World.” Seven quilts are available for the silent auction which will end on   Tuesday, June 17 at 4:00pm. Three of the quilts have been     machine quilted, the other four are comfy tied-down quilts. All proceeds will go to support projects in Kenya. We invite you to come down and view the students’ accomplishments and make a bid to support our mission project.

Lost and Found:
Parents, please come into the school and sort through the Lost & Found for any items that may belong to your children.  Whatever is not taken home will be given to the Kid's Corner in July.  Thank you.

Spring Musical Concert:
Thanks to everyone who attended our Spring Musical Concert on Tuesday, June 10th. We appreciate your support of our students’ wonderful musical and quilting skills.
