Donate to the Hat and Mitten Tree in the Lobby

This year we have a Hat and Mitten Tree located in the school lobby.  Please hang a new hat or pair of mittens on our tree. All the items will then be donated to families in need throughout our city. We are also collecting toiletries which can be placed below the tree. Thanks for your support during the holiday season!
