Searching for some Elves

We need a few Elf helpers in the Barn for the Elves Workshop being held on Friday, December 16th from 10:30am-12:00pm.  No prior elf experience necessary to volunteer for this fun time.  If you are interested in helping put on this fun event for our primary students, contact Miss Sara.  She can get you in touch with the big bosses in charge of this exciting event.

 Mr. T’s Take…

We are approaching the mid-way mark for our Annual Fund campaign and I am thrilled with the response so far.   As of today, we have raised approximately $21,000 from our community.  What’s really exciting is the number of grandparents who have given to our campaign – seven!  Although we have some ways to go to reach our goal of $50,000, we are receiving contributions on a regular basis.  Current contribution levels for each building as of December 2nd:

Lodge:                  69%

Barn:                    37%

Treehouse:         32%

Thanks to everyone who has contributed.  Remember, give what you can afford and help us attain our goal of 100 percent participation by current families.  Stay warm this weekend and we will see what Old Man Winter has in store for us on Monday!
