Beginning to think: I feel certain I exist
Thanks to this incredible community, we do exist; and better yet, we grow! You are aware by now that this is Giving Tuesday, and our fundraising campaign is galloping along. Enormous heart-felt thanks to everyone who has already made a donation, and to those of you who even created a NYGives page of your own to expand our efforts. Let’s just take today to feel how wonderfully and certainly we do exist!

Winter Spiral – Friday, Dec 1st Evergreen boughs still needed!
On Friday, you may join us for one of the most magical festivities of the year. All children will have an opportunity to walk the spiral, and spread the light in their hearts as we approach the darkest days of the season. If you have evergreen boughs to contribute to this special event please bring them next week, so that we can create the spiral on Thursday. Parents are welcome to watch the children in silence on the following schedule:
8:30 am – Grade 2
9 am – Apple Blossom Class
10 am – Peach Blossom Class
11 am – Cherry Blossom Class
11:45 am – Grade 1

1:30 pm – Grade 5/6
2:15 pm – Grade 3/4
Please visit our website for a brief description of the event.
Student Portraits from Lifetouch
Dearest Families, first an apology: our photo service has been a little confused this year, and I’m sorry for that. Many of you have questions about ordering etc, and I will try to answer them here:
We are still waiting for the proper proof sheets for each child – what I have been offering you are samples, but they do not show the multiple possible backgrounds from which you may choose. These also DO NOT provide the code you will need to order online. All of these things will be arriving, hopefully, within the next few days and I will distribute them to you.
Still confused? Please don’t hesitate to stop by the office, or call our Lifetouch rep Ken Whitman at (607)621-7174.
