“God gives us many gifts, he cares for us the way a father cares for his children.” Psalm 103:1-2,13-14,17-18 This psalm rang out to me today because our community is blessed with so many gifts and so many people have willingly shared them with us. We are grateful for all that they do.

Springfest Baskets are due Thursday March 9th, 2017, during Parent-Teacher conference. Drop off will take place in the front lobby. When dropping off your basket, be sure to enclose the following information:
- Family Name
- Basket Theme
- Basket Cost
- Items in Basket
This will help us accurately record and track all donations. If a family does not create a basket, a $45 fee will be billed to them. Please remember that all baskets must be wrapped in clear cellophane with items securely attached inside the basket.
Baskets do not need to be baskets! Feel free to get creative when putting your items together. Use coolers, buckets, storage bins, suitcases, or other items that might be applicable to your “basket” theme. Most importantly, have fun and be creative!
