TGIF (Thanking Giraffes ls Fruitful)

My weekly message for 12/11/20

Dear Team Stellar,


A relatively quiet week here at our Wildcat Village. Everyone seems to be hunkered down and keeping their eyes on the goal post of our pending 2 week break. Students are the same level of wonky that they would be were we in person... A couple of students have mentioned that they know that  Santa is immune to COVID-19, so they're not TOO worried... (he doesn't spread it either...)


To our families that celebrate Hanukkah,  “Chag Urim Sameach!”


I'm including the flyer for our Holiday Outreach again, as the next time we chat, it will be past the hoped for delivery date of said items. Please bring your donations with you on Wednesday, our scheduled pick up day. Recall that Mrs. Romo is spearheading a community collection of needed items for the homeless community that is in and around our neighborhoods. Please provide as many of these items as you are able.


Speaking of giving: My reminder last week about our year end giving campaign prompted a couple of donations. Hopefully this reminder will prompt a couple more. We would like to be able to build/install the playground and structure. I'm always looking towards our future and our future needs to include a safe and fun playground and play structure... We got this....


As I finish up this email, it is looking like rain!! I note, on my Apple weather app, that rain is predicted this weekend.. Correction - Brenda JUST told me that it is raining outside!!!! WOO-HOO!!! We need it so.


Have a great weekend and I'll see many of you next Wednesday at our monthly pick up and drop off!!!
