TE Morning News - March 11, 2020 
  • Good morning. As you know, kids from our POP Preschool Program are collecting items for our local animal shelters. Large decorated boxes are located around the school in the hallways so any donated items can be dropped off there. Items to be donated can include dog and cat treats, collars, toys, food bowls, paper towels, etc. A list of items needed is located near the boxes for your convenience. Additionally, the Poppers will be holding a parade on Thursday, March 12th in the afternoon. This is where we need your help! If you could please consider donating $1 or an item for the shelter, the Pop kids will be SO happy! As they parade by your class, you can drop your $1 donation tin their bucket or place your item in their wagon. The Poppers are very excited about the parade and your donation will certainly put a smile on their faces. So PLEASE, consider donating to a very good cause that is in need. And on behalf of the Poppers, Peer Mediation, and the “Be The Change Club”, thank you very much!
