Carnival is scheduled for Friday January 26th 430-8pm. Volunteer sign up schedule will be posted soon. We will be looking for donations of 2 liters of pop, theatre size boxes of candy, suckers, and baked goods for the cake walk! There will be opportunity to help on Thursday January 25th in the evening from 5pm-9pm with pre-set up and organization and decorating. The 26th is a half day, so we will have much more time to get the school and rooms ready than last year. Volunteers for set up on the 26th, running games, and clean up will be needed! We can’t run the games without the help of parents who can give an hour of their time. We will again be reaching out to NHS students as well.
Hat Day- Thanks to everyone who participated in Hat Day with your donations, South was able to send a few more students to the Shop with A Cop program. There were 14 students total from South who were able to participate, thanks to you and to the Grandville police Department!
Thanks for all of your support! Have a great week!
