We are very excited to bring the Elf Shelf Holiday Store to our school from Monday, December 5th to Thursday, December 8th.
To make this a fun and successful event for our children, volunteers are needed to fill hour long slots each day.
We have set up a sign up sheet for volunteering. Please click HERE to select a date and time. Feel free to sign up for multiple slots and days! Please sign up for the times that are most convenient for you and share the above links to anyone you know who might be interested in volunteering. This is also a great opportunity for grandparents to be part of their grandchildren's school!
Also, your child should have been sent home with information about setting up eWallet and cash envelopes. Feel free to reach out with any questions.
WYATT GIVING CONTINUES - CHRISTMAS COPS
Wyatt is again partnering with Plano Police Association Christmas Cops toy and clothing drive. Christmas Cops is a non-profit organization of Plano police officers and volunteers who see a tremendous need in our communities. Please help assist less fortunate Plano families this holiday season by donating “Toys for Tots”. Please have your child bring an unwrapped age appropriate board game, arts and crafts item, or toy for an elementary school age child by Friday, December 9th. Parents can also drop off donations at the school from 7 am to 3:30 pm through Thursday, December 8th.
Thank you for your Wallaroo generosity!
