Pajama Drive December 10-14

Parents of 2nd Graders~
This holiday season we are collecting new children’s pajamas for kids in need in our community. We need kids’ pajamas in all sizes. Now is the season to pick them up fairly inexpensively. We will collect pajamas December 10-15. Students that bring in a pair of pajamas will get a coupon which will allow them to bring in a stuffed animal for the last ½ days of December.
Thanks in advance for your support,
The 2nd Grade Team Teachers
