Tomahawk Nation!

Happy Sunday! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

This week, we are looking forward to the 3rd Grade concert on Thursday, December 13th. This is a great way to get in the holiday spirit and see your kids perform! See the calendar for specific times based on your classroom teacher.

Our fifth grade iLead students are hard at work on their service projects. Mr. Nostro’s class is collecting toys and supplies for Ronald McDonald House. If you have supplies to donate, we ask that you send them in to school by December 18th. There is a detailed list in the weekly email if you are interested in helping out our fifth grade friends as they learn about the importance and value of service in our community.

As always, if we can do anything for you or your child, do not hesitate to let us know!

Love. Learn. Lead.

Ms. Dalton

Harrisburg Helpers

Parents! Have you been looking for a way to volunteer this holiday season? Want to get plugged in to our school even more? We are looking for Volunteer Reading Buddies for many of our kids. This is a great way to get involved! We are looking for approved volunteers to come in and read with assigned students that may need a little bit of help or a little bit of attention. Teachers will provide books and/or lesson plans....all you need is an open heart and a little bit of time!

Please complete the interest form and we will be in touch with the details. Thank you for your commitment to our students. We are so excited to partner with our Indian Land community and Harrisburg volunteers!
