Thank you for Helping to End Homelessness
Thank you so much for the donations and for volunteering. We are very thankful. We made 18 welcome home baskets! We are so appreciative of your hard work and support. We will be delivering the baskets to Goodwill next week. - Gwennie & Ava
February 5 at 10:00 and 11:00 a.m.
Join us on February 5 for a fun morning of sledding at Twin Lakes Park. Because the sledding hill is small, we are inviting our youngest children (Nido, YCC, and Primary) to arrive at 10 a.m. Families with Elementary and Junior High students are invited to arrive at 11 a.m. to provide some overlap with our entire school community while allowing our youngest children a safe time to sled first. Warm up by the fire and enjoy hot chocolate. (As part of our Green School initiative, please bring your own mug!)
Please click here to sign up! What to bring: a sled, a mug, and a mask to use the indoor bathrooms.

Spirit Wear Swap
Because everyone loves Spirit Fridays and children grow fast, a group of parents have set up a Spirit Wear Swap in the coat room adjacent to the front desk. Leave an item your child has outgrown and take something that fits! Stop by anytime. (And while you’re here, be sure to check the Lost and Found for items your child could be missing.)
