We Want Your Gently Used Shoes
We have several students in need of replacement shoes this time of year.  Please consider donating any used shoes you have that are in decent condition and we will find a pair of feet to fill them.  Drop them in the office and we will take it from there.

Lost Clothing – Please Help!

Help! Our lost and found is about to overflow! Please check in for missing jackets, hoodies, hats and gloves. If your child’s coat or jacket is labeled, that helps us out a lot. All lost and found items will be donated at the end of next week.

Please save items to donate for April 21

5th grade parents are sponsoring the spring Rummage Sale on April 21 in honor of Earth Day, to support of Adams 5th grade outdoor School.  This fun event aligns with our green school mission and the upcoming Next Step electronics round-up.    If you are doing some spring cleaning over the break, please hold on to quality items that could be donated to support this cause.  Donation drop off will be April 20 and the sale on April 21

Also, NEXTSTEP recycling will have a donation bin to keep e-waste out of our landfills. Those items need can be accepted, working or not.  If it runs (or ran) on a cord or batteries, it will be rebuilt, sold or recycled rather than end up in the trash.  GO GREEN!
