GALA NEWS:

In the past, we have asked for “class donations” to help make class baskets to auction off. However, we would like to try something new this year.   We have decided to introduce a “Wine Garden” to our event for some added fun. Attendees will be able to purchase a ticket to our Garden, pick out a bottle, and have the chance of winning a very expensive fine wine.

 

The committee is asking every school family to donate at least one bottle of wine to make this new event a success. It could be either red or white, but we are asking for the bottles to be worth at least $10.00.   Bottles will be collected until the last week of January which can be dropped off in the school office. Thank you for your support.
