Square One Art - Display Opportunity
Do you have artwork that your child made through a past Center School Square One art fundraiser? Many families ordered artwork (mugs, aprons, tiles, etc.) for loved ones through this fundraiser. We are collecting artwork for brief display at Center School. All pieces welcome! This is a great opportunity to show the unique work made by Center School kids. Artwork will be in a protective case. Bring pieces with name/grade to the front office. Or, we will pick up at your convenience: email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Megan Pierson at 857-234-4556.
Helping Hands - Kindergarten & Firth Grade -
Tuesday, March 7th
Center School Helping Hands is a school-wide effort that provides our students an opportunity to work as grade level teams to make a difference by making sandwiches to help feed the hungry. Helping Hands is a collective endeavor that depends on the generosity of our Peace Builders community; and we anticipate another successful year!
WHAT TO BRING:
Each family may voluntarily send in with your child sandwich meat, cheese, and bread to make sandwiches on their designated day. We suggest 1lb. meat; ½ lb. cheese; two loaves of bread, although any donated amount is appreciated. The number of sandwiches delivered each month will depend on donations. We are also desperately in need of Sandwich Bags. If each family could also bring a box of bags we can help replenish our supply.
WHO MAY COME:
Siblings are more than welcome to make sandwiches too. For example, this month will be with 1st graders. If you have a 1st grader and a 3rd grader, feel free to send the 3rd grader to help. The more helping hands the better!!
