Our school community traditionally hosts an Angel Tree during the holiday season to make the season special for our Lyles-Crouch families in need. Due to COVID, we are not able to do the Angel Tree this year. However, in lieu of the Angel Tree, and in the spirit of holiday giving, please consider donating a $25 or $50 gift card to Target or Walmart. Our School Social Worker, Beverly Woolard, will use these to help make the holidays bright for our own. Please bring gift cards to the holiday gift box in the front office by next Thursday, December 16th. Thank you for your generosity and Happy Holidays!

The Uniform Locker is located to the left of the main entrance to the school; its entry door faces the parking lot. If you have clothing to donate, donations are welcome at any time and can be dropped off at the front office. They can also be dropped off during the time uniform lockers are held.
