    Our 5th grade Garden Club will be holding a seed and flower sale Friday morning (9/23) before school.  We are trying to raise money to buy a shade tree for our community garden. Seed packets will be $2 apiece, or 3 for $5. Flower arrangements will be $5-$10. We will only be able to accept cash or check please.

    Please be vigilant about handwashing and keeping your student home when they are experiencing symptoms of illness.
