Operation TreeHouse… our 5th grade service project:

$10 has been sent home with each child.  We hope that you have seen it and it is being kept in a safe spot. As you are shopping, please remember to refer to the list of suggested items that was sent home in last week’s Friday Folder.  

Feel free to bring in donation anytime between now and January 30th.  

Although students are being given $10 we are still encouraging them to try to earn another $10.00 between now and the end of January to purchase even more food/items. We really want the kids to take ownership in this service project. We are hoping that by earning money and then shopping for others, the kids will help be better connected to our service project.

**Donation drop off at Mary Bridge Treehouse will be Tuesday, Jan. 30th at 1:30pm.  We are only in need of 3 parents per classroom to participate in this.  If you are willing to help out please email your child’s teacher.  We will assign drivers on a first come first serve basis. 5B is full!  Thanks to the parents that signed up!
