Hot Cocoa Celebration and MS Notes



Hello Middle School families!

The end of 2021 is here already, we cannot believe it. A few notes for this week:
1. All Middle Schoolers will have a Hot Cocoa and Treat Celebration on Thursday before their final exam. Thank you to all who have helped and contributed! Photos to come!
2. Clothing Closet Pop Up Shop:

The Clothing Exchange Closet is having a POP-UP “SHOP” outside of Morris Hall (north-east side of the senior quad) from Friday, the 10th through Thursday, the 16th. We are taking all items out of the Clothing Exchange Closet to make them easily accessible. The items are available to EVERYONE! This is a community event based on sustainability and responsibility. We encourage all CA families to pick up items and/or donate. Did your child have a growth spurt? Pants too short? Drop off the old ones and swap them for a gently used pair! Need sweaters, jumpers, or spirt wear? Come see what we have! Donation bins will also be placed next to the tables for you to drop off any gently-used items.
Feel free to contact Service Department faculty rep Sarah Hansen (hansens) or PACA rep Catherine Chen (chenlicl99) with any questions.

3. To Our Generous Community

During this season of giving, please consider joining in the 2021-22 Annual Fund, our school’s top fundraising priority. First-semester gifts and pledges are especially helpful in planning for a successful year. Donations support faculty and their curricular innovation, flourishing arts and athletics programs, tuition assistance, and new opportunities that may arise. To ensure your tax-deductible donation is counted in 2021, please give online or postmark your envelope by December 31. For assistance, please contact the Development Office. Thank you to those who have already participated!
