THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT AT THE TALBOT’S TOYLAND SIP AND SHOP EVENT!

We would like to thank all the families and friends who joined us onThursday, December 6th at Talbot’s Toyland for our fundraising shopping event. We had a nice turnout and the evening was a nice time to relax, nibble on some snacks and catch up with friends, all while picking out some great gifts for the holidays. Your support is appreciated! A special thank you to Shannon Adams-Ferris, Danielle Lutticken, Michelle Cirigliano and Teacher Mireille for planning and making the event a success!

PLACEMAT TEAM THANKS

Most of you received your placemat this past week and those of you who were absent will receive them this coming week.  We hope you will all enjoy them for years to come. They are truly a labor of love!! Special thanks to all the class liaisons, the editors and our placemat coordinator. We’ve been thanking you all personally in your classes but also want to extend this thanks. This was truly a TEAM effort and we are very appreciative of your time and talents.
