A big thank you to all of the parents, friends, and family who donated items, helped prepare for the sale, spread the word, and worked the sale on Saturday! We saw a good turnout, felt a willing spirit among the helpers, and had a surprising revenue for our first sale. We are eager to allocate these funds for various projects and gifts to benefit our teachers! It was also our privilege to donate many gently used books to our teachers for their classrooms.

Our next meeting will be at 6:30 on Monday, April 8th.
