Cradles to Crayons Clothing Drive
Calling all Parents and Guardians:
We have had a lot going on with our busy lives, snow days and now MCAS testing; however I wanted to bring your attention to the Cradles to Crayons clothes drive that has been going on for the last few weeks.  We have 3 hard working 8th graders who are involved with Project 351 spearheading this effort and they ask that you please take a minute and drop off any gently used shirts, shorts, coats pants, sweatshirts, shoes- any article of clothing you can!
So go clean out that closet, attic, or basement and bring those items to the middle school office.  We need everything by the end of school on Friday, April 6th.
Please help out this great effort that will help the over 300,000 children living in poverty.
Regards,
Al
