Silvergraphics - Order Now!
Wednesday, Nov. 9 - Wednesday, Nov. 23

We are continuing to partner with SilverGraphics to celebrate creativity and raise funds for our school! Your children have worked very hard with Mrs. Shea, our art teacher, on beautiful handprint pop art (Kindergarten) and colorful parrots (1st thru 4th Grade). And for the first time, our 5th Graders were given the opportunity to create a colorful parrot selected by Mrs. Shea or create their own individual work of art! Thank you to Mrs. Shea for allowing them to showcase their skills!! See example art below.  Go here for information how to order!

Holiday Gift Drive 2022

The holiday season will soon be upon us and Princeton Human Services would like to ask for your help in brightening a child’s Holidays. With these hard economic times during the pandemic, we understand the need is still great.  Applications are received for children up to age twelve (12), which includes 1-2 gifts they would like for the holidays, which are not to exceed $75 dollars. In addition to sponsoring a child’s wish list, we are asking donors to consider donating a gift card to help the parents/families of the children during these difficult times. Go here for more information, and here to sign up to support a child and/or family.  Please sign up by Friday, November 18. 2022.
