We are pleased to inform you that all schools will close for SPRING BREAK from APRIL 9-13TH. Students will return to classes on Monday, April 16th.
The year has gone by so quickly and I have appreciated the individual time and attention you have given to the children, contributions of equipment and books, delicious home cooked meals, and your very generous monetary donations during our campaign.
We were extremely happy to welcome several new volunteers this year; and now our hearts are filled with sadness to say “goodbye” to wonderful friends like Jerri & Larry Meisner and Cathy & Tom Alexander who will be moving away.
We wish you and your loved ones a blessed and peace-filled Easter!
