Wanted: Your Junk – A Child’s Treasure
Linda’s Library Contest Will Use Small Toys as Prizes
Each day before and after school, the library has many children do Linda’s contest, which matches her jewelry to events of the day. Each child who enters wins a small prize which was donated by someone like you. Please bring your unwanted toys (e.g. fast food toys, goodie bag toys, things your child has outgrown) to Linda, and she will ensure it makes a child very happy.
Please Be Considerate Drivers
Pick-up and drop-off are busy and often tense times for parents. But even if your student is running late for school, or you have an appointment, or you just want to get through the line-up as quickly as possible, please show your respect and consideration for all parents by following the curbside etiquette.
