Sunshine Project

Our character word of the month is GENEROSITY.  This project will allow our students to be generous toward others without any tangible reward for themselves.  We do not want this to be a hardship on anyone.  Bringing one item would be wonderful.  If you can bring more that is great!  The students have been asked to check with their parents before bringing anything to school.  This is for the Sunshine Children’s Home.   Click here for list of needs
