Yes, we are having a book drive! 

Please start cleaning out your shelves. We'll start collecting November 8-10. And will have books for sale after school on November 10th.

Our weekly food drive continues:

Our weekly food drive for CHiPs continues. Last year, the Community Outreach Committee ran a pop-up food drive each Wednesday morning to accept food donations for CHiPS, a community kitchen located on 4th Avenue.  They serve over 400 people breakfast and lunch each day.  The food PS107 donates on Wednesday morning is packed into dinners for CHiPs clients.
