I hope you and your family were able to join us last week for our annual Trunk or Treat… it was truly a great time to be in fellowship with one another as a community. With the month of October now behind us… we look to November and have our hearts centered around being thankful and how we might be able to help others. In fact, one of our student clubs, Others B4 Self, is sponsoring a food drive to benefit The Community Storehouse and NISD’s Fill the Bus Food Drive. We are asking each grade level to give something specific and non-perishable, that will go with a Thanksgiving meal. We will be collecting items from Monday, October 29 - Friday, November 9.

  • PPCD, Pre-K, & Kindergarten: Boxes of Mac N Cheese and/or Stuffing
  • 1st Grade: Canned Veggies, Beans, Yams
  • 2nd Grade: Boxes of Instant Potatoes
