There will be no peanut butter sandwiches or drinks available, either. If you are not participating in the Pizza Lunch, please send your child(ren) with a sack lunch and drink. If you need an order form go here. Proceeds go to the Learning Resource Center!
Third grader's constructed "Bunny Baskets" for the guests at Housing Forward (formerly PADS). Each month the 3 graders make placemats for the guests as part of an ongoing service project. Serving others with a joyful, creative spirit builds connections to those in need.
