The Middle School is raising funds again this holiday season to support a very special cause - the Oncology Holiday Gift Program. This year, we will support a family with 6 or more children who have a child undergoing cancer treatment at Children's Hospital in Oakland. With funds raised, we will provide gift certificates to the family to help with their holiday shopping.
