Holiday Fund & Giving Tree
December 2nd - 13th
We are thrilled to bring back this tradition again for 2019. This is a wonderful way to show our teachers and staff some much-deserved appreciation and save you a trip to the store! Instead of shopping for individual gifts for your teachers and the staff you can simply give a gift of cash to the Holiday Fund. You can give any amount that you would like. You can send in your donations anytime between Dec. 2nd and Dec. 13th. The monetary gifts will be distributed to the entire staff along with thank-you cards during the teacher/staff luncheon on December 18th.
College View Elementary Holiday Toy Drive
December 9th - 13th
We are proud to support the College View Elementary School again this year with our 3rd annual toy drive. This Denver Public School, so very close in proximity to our own, has some immense needs. Sadly, many of these families cannot afford to buy their children gifts during the holiday season.
The Toy Drive is completely optional, no one is required to participate. But in the spirit of giving, and to a community that could really use a helping hand. Below is the list they provided for ideas/suggestions for their community
As an extension of the Toy Drive, the staff at College View Elementary would like to also have a gift-wrapping station at the day of toy distribution. Therefore, we are asking students to bring gift wrapping supplies on Friday, December 13th.
Lastly, we will be delivering gifts to College View on Thursday, December 19th and assisting in toy distribution as well as manning a wrapping station on Friday, December 20th. We are looking for numerous volunteers to help us during specific times during these days. If you would like to further join us in the Spirit of Giving, please click here to sign up.
***New this year: Children who are old enough to help wrap presents
are welcome to attend and volunteer at the wrapping station on Friday, December 20th***
Please email Michelle Householder at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns.
