Lower School

Thank you all for your generosity to make this year another successful ElderNet collection. We will deliver 16 food baskets to at-risk elderly and disabled adults in our community. We are especially appreciative of the work of our volunteers and parent reps to get this coordinated in such a short amount of time. Special thanks to Melissa Anderson, Chandra Thorne, and Julie Shapiro for taking the lead and coordinating the ElderNet collection this year.
