JK-8 Weekly Update

JK-8 Families--  Hopefully you have enjoyed your extended weekend and can find many things to be thankful for!  

I know I always have the info at the end of this email, but don't forget to keep checking our PK-8 Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/shenpk8/) to see all the fun and cool things we are doing in our building.  It is always fun to share the greatness that is going on!

As we enter December, we have some things going on that you could help us with:

First, winter can be brutal! Please help those who are less fortunate, but may still need to be out in the cold. The Giving Tree is available now (in the JK-8 Commons) to place donations of hats, gloves and mittens on its branches. 

Second, we have a Food Drive going on from now until Dec. 16.  All elementary and middle school students can bring in non-perishable food items to support the local Food Pantry.  Please bring your items to their classroom and the MS Student Council will pick them up.

Just a reminder that the Elementary/Middle School library has started its fundraiser through ShopfFund.com   Every student received a packet containing information/booklets about the sales process, items for sale, and prizes for the student.  All sales are completed online at ShopFund.com.  Students can encourage sales to family and friends through text messages and emails.  This is a great way to start your Christmas shopping with unique gifts, snack items, and magazines! The library checks online sales daily and will give students Porkchop Posse pop-ups for every item sold online.  In January, students will also receive prizes based upon the number of sales (this is found on the packet envelope).  The money received from the fundraiser helps to purchase library books.  The fundraiser ends on November 29, 2022. We are very close to our goal and we appreciate everyone's help.  Thank you for your support.
