Parents – You MUST let an adult know when you are taking your child from after school !  At 3:30, the teachers have already checked the students into our care.  When you take your child without letting an adult know, we have to spend time looking for them to find out who picked them up.  Please help us with this matter by checking out with an adult.  Thank you, from the After School Staff

It’s Girl Scout Cookie time!  Brownie Troop 21 will sell cookies after school on Wednesday, February 28th and Thursday, March 1st.  Be sure to pick up your favorite cookies and support the troop.

Scouting News – Arrow of Light Den, Cub Scout Pack 303 (Christopher McC. 5B, Aidan C. 5B, and Alexander F. 5A) – These boys raised money for material, and made 5 flannel and fleece boy baby blankets to donate to Newborns in Need.  Awesome job, guys!

Please continue to share the SMS code with your family/friends and use SMSEAGLES on those Papa Johns orders!  SMS continues to partner with Papa Johns to receive 10% of all orders.  Keep in mind that this code can be used in addition to those specials!

The SMS Book Club – $25 adds a book to the Library’s permanent Collection! Select from the Wish List or pick a special book just for your student.  The book, with a personal message, will be presented to the student during library. It is a wonderful way to give a unique and memorable gift that keeps on giving! If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to the PTG. See attached form for details.

God’sHelpers:  Our Annual “Operation Blessing-Bag-Boomerang” Project begins today!  Each student will be bringing home a gallon-sized ziplock bag with a flyer inside.  The flyer explains the entire project and includes ideas of things to place in the donation bags.  Please consider filling a bag for one of the 3 types of charities listed, and then return the filled bag to school between Monday, February 26th and Tuesday, March 6th.  Like a boomerang is thrown out and then returns to the “thrower”, we are sending our bags out to you all, to fill and return to us – so that we may pass your blessing along to someone in need.  We pray that the kindness you show by being a blessing to others through this project is returned to you!  With every small act of great love, we help spread Jesus' love to those around us!  Thank you for joining us for this Lenten Service Project!
