KIRN’S TREE OF WARMTH:

Our 2nd Annual Tree of Warmth is up and ready to provide gloves/mittens, hats and scarves to students who need them!! If you would like to add an “ornament” (a pair of gloves, a hat, a scarf) to this year’s tree, please drop them off at the office or ask your student to give them to their advisory teacher. Thank you in advance for your help with keeping kids warm this winter!!
