Kindergarten News: 10/1

Hi Parents,
Thank you for sending in new and gently used books for the Book’Em book drive! These books will benefit children in our community who do not have books to read at home. The book drive ends next Thursday, October 7th, so there is still plenty of time to send in books. We appreciate your support!
