Our auction, Denim and Diamonds, is coming up. It is on Saturday, February 9th, and I hope to see all of you there! As a reminder, we have an auction basket that needs to be filled. The theme is grilling. Please check the e-mail Mrs. Preston sent about it and contribute in any way that you can. I was lucky enough to receive a SMART Board (interactive whiteboard) as a result of last year’s auction money, so your donations really help our school and your child’s learning.
