Our December Sock Drive continues through 12/15. Keep bringing in new, unused pairs of socks! We have collected around 130 pairs so far, and our goal is to reach 500 pairs. All socks will be donated to Hannah's Socks and Cherry Street Mission.
Our Safety Patrol program started this month! Fifth grade students had to apply for the job and complete an interview with references. Selected students now wear the Safety Patrol belt/sash and badge, and assist the staff with dismissal, breakfast clean-up, and other safety jobs throughout the day. We are so thankful for their commitment and responsibility!
Our Santa Shop will be open December 15-18 during school hours Monday-Wednesday and on Thursday until noon. Students can bring in money in the Santa Shop envelope and purchase gifts for family and friends! All money raised will be used for our PTO, which provides extra resources and rewards for our students.
Our Book Fair raised $1200, which provides us with $600 in new library books. We also raised $121.35 in change for All For Books. Miss Dorsey's Kindergarten class had lots of fun breaking open the piñata! Thank you to everyone who shopped at our Book Fair! Encourage your child to read every day, even over the holidays!
December has been a busy month! Our last full day for students will be Thursday, December 18; there will be no school on Friday, 12/19. Class winter parties will take place Thursday afternoon; please contact your child's teacher for details. The REACH Academy staff hope you enjoy the holiday season, and we look forward to working with you again in January!
