The holidays are coming soon, and it has been a very tough year for many people in our learning community.  I encourage any students who are struggling to buy gifts for their children to send a request for our Angel Tree.  So far, I have only seen one request, and I know there are many students with children who could benefit from an extra gift or two.

To make a request: 

-Send an email to [log in to unmask]
-List the age(s) of your child(ren)
-Tell us if the child is a boy or girl
-If your child needs an item of clothing, please give sizes
-Please tell us if your child likes certain types of games or books or toys
-Give us a way to contact you to arrange pick-up of the gifts, which will be wrapped
-Children ages 0-18 years are eligible
-We're telling those who want to contribute to spend no more than $25, so please keep that in mind if you have specific suggestions for a gift for your child

The deadline for requests is Monday, December 16th at 4:00 PM.
