We will have bounce houses in the gym on May 23rd and 24th.  Thank you for collecting and sending in boxtops this year!

We will be collecting all types of hamburger helper for the month of April.  This will be our last collection of the school year.  Thank you so much for being so generous.  You're teaching your children a very valuable characteristic trait.

The elementary field day will be on Friday, May 11.  It will begin as close to 8:30 as possible and last until lunchtime.  We are making it a "fun day".  Come on out and help us celebrate another school year!

Our March collection for the East Texas Food Bank is underway.  We are collecting canned chicken.  Your willingness to help others in need is overwhelming.  Thank you for teaching your child the importance of giving back to the community he/she lives in.

I want to make it my goal this school year to teach our children the importance of giving back to the community we live in.  We now have a branch of the East Texas Food Bank in Elkhart.  It's housed at First Baptist Elkhart and distribution is on the first Thursday of each month.  Beginning in September clients will actually be able to "shop" for the food items they can use.  There are some items that are more expensive for our food bank to purchase so we are going to have monthly food drives at the elementary asking only for those items. 
For the month of September our food item will be canned tuna.  We will have a box in the gym where the students can bring their donation.  I'll remind students also, (probably weekly) what the monthly donation is. 
Thank you for helping to teach your child that "we are all here to help one another."
