Chores for Change
Let’s do other people’s dirty work to help a family in need this holiday season. Sit down with your child and figure out a list of chores they can do to earn money. Clean the toilets for mom, sweep the floors for grandpa, or walk a neighbor’s dog. Let’s remind our children that not only are our families important, but everyone else in our community is important too. Please place your “change” in your child’s classroom PRESENT BOX! The Family School Board Members are on board as well. For every dollar earned they will match it!!!
Our wonderful grounds keeper, Nacho Larios, is in need of a washing machine! His died this past week. If anyone happens to be replacing one or has one they'd be willing to donate, please let the office know.
A mom brought this article in to me this morning and I thought you all might find it interesting! I think all of us with kids have certainly relate to this! There are some very clever ideas here. I hope you think so as well. Enjoy!
I look forward to seeing everyone at the parade tomorrow!
See you then,
