Winter clothing swap cancellation

The winter outerwear swap scheduled for Wednesday, November 8th in the gym has been cancelled due to a lack of donations.

What has been donated already will be available as a “swap box” outside the school office. The cold weather is fast approaching, so please come by and see if the swap box has anything you need to fill out winter wardrobes. The swap box will be available until the end of next week at which point the rest will be donated to New Circles clothing donation program.
