November PTO Message

PTO World Kindness Day Book Drive
Saturday, November 13 from 1:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. at Winkelman
As we're entering a time when people are thinking about gratitude and all they're thankful for, join the PTO for World Kindness Day! We'll have bins to collect used books for Bernie's Book Bin (birth through 6th-grade reading level) and nonperishable food (especially boxed cereal, juice and juice boxes, canned soup, chili and beef stew, canned fruit) for the Northfield pantry. In exchange for your kindness, you'll receive a little kindness in return, including lollipops, activities, and a photo op on site. Bins will be located outside Winkelman from November 13-18. Your act of kindness can make all the difference in the world.
