Team Day Celebration, Friday, November 11
Our Team Day celebration is coming up on Friday, November 11th, which is also Veteran’s Day. Part of the celebration will involve honoring our veterans in a few different ways. In the week leading up to Team Day, the PTO would like to sponsor an all-school service project collecting items for residents at the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans. If you can participate, we ask that items be dropped off in the school lobby anytime between Monday, November 7th-Thursday, November 10th. We can then deliver the items on Veteran’s Day to the home.
The Home for Veterans said the following items are especially needed during the holiday season. Any donation would be greatly appreciated to make this time of year brighter for our Veterans.
100 piece Jigsaw puzzles, postage stamps, coloring books for adults, lighters, D, D and AAA batteries, body wash (popular brand is White Rain Body Wash), hot chocolate mix, new socks and underwear for clothing room, full size or snack size candy bars, After shave (plastic container), Diabetic socks, Electric razors, pre-electric shave (plastic container), large print books for library (Suspense, Romance, and Bibles), warm clothing (all sizes-special need for very small and very large sizes) and craft supplies (scissors, construction paper, glue sticks, markers, colored pencils, crayons).
