This year many of our neighbors and people in the community are in need. What a great time to focus our attention on teaching our children compassion for others this holiday season. With the success of our “Giving Tree” last year, we are going to do it again this year. However, the school we partner with is asking for help in another way. They are asking for items that they feel are a huge need in their building and they cannot sustain. So, this year we are doing a “Snack Giving Tree”. This is a great way for students, staff and community members to be involved by giving back to our community. This provides a great opportunity to discuss the blessings your own family enjoys.  The “Snack Giving Tree” will be set up over Fall Conferences. If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Ortman.
