Christmas Giving Project: Want to see your teacher kiss a pig?? Start using your dollars to vote for who you would like to see pucker up! Teacher jars are in the office! This year we are raising money and/or collecting yards of fleece to make blankets for Ms. Leininger's Royal Family Kids Camp. It takes 5 yards of fleece to make each blanket (2.5 yards patterned and 2.5 yards solid print). Fleece donations will be given a dollar amount value that goes towards the teacher's jar of your choosing! Get your dollar votes in by the 12th; the "winning" teacher will pucker up at December 13 Chapel!
