Tree Harper: Thank you to all who pledged to buy trees during Tree Harper’s Fund Razor III. Tree Harper received $320 in pledges! Send all donations to Harper’s front office – checks made out to Tree Harper and cash placed in a labeled envelope. With this amount, Tree Harper will be able to buy 3 or 4 trees! With an overwhelming victory, the winning beard style is… drum roll please… the Question Mark Beard! Mr. McKim will wear it during all school hours on Tuesday 12/4/18. Pictures will be taken for the yearbook. While it is too late to affect the beard contest results, Tree Harper welcomes any donations at any time. Once again, Tree Harper thanks you!

The 2018 Adopt A Family Program-Update


   Thank you so much to the many of you who have offered to “adopt” a Harper family or child during this holiday season.   At this point the only thing left that we could still use to help these efforts would be gift cards to local grocery stores or Target.  Please bring them to the office, labeled “Adopt A Family”, with your names on them,  so we know who to thank.  Each card will go to our identified students in need.  All donations need to be in the office between Monday, the 17th and Wednesday, December 19th. 


    Sincerely, Kerin Kelleher and Liza Lopez
