Book Fair Thank You!​

Thank you to all of you that graciously volunteered your time to help with this school fundraiser!  

It really can not be done with out the help of everyone involved and know that you have helped inspire kids to read and add a few more pencils and erasers to their lives!  

Our grand total came to $7071.65, with the teachers and library taking $2,308.00 worth of books for their classroom.

 

Winter Warmer Thank You!

The weather was perfect, the cider was hot, music was wonderful and everyone had a festive time.

This event really came about because of all the amazing people who stepped up and volunteered their time to put on a lovely afternoon for our kids and the Secord Community: from felting, to wreaths, to print making, setting up and cleaning up, and entertaining us. 

Thank you Volunteers!
