The Holiday Bazaar is officially back!

We asked and you volunteered. So it’s official: the Holiday Bazaar is back! We’ll send out a note for families to donate new and gently used games, toys, candles, puzzles, and the like. Then students buy them to give as holiday gifts and proceeds support our school.

If you haven’t yet signed up but would like to help, we’re looking for volunteers for the evening of December 7th and during the day on the 8th.
