Please don’t forget about our special Operation Christmas Child program we began a few weeks ago. Samaritan’s Purse, through Operation Christmas Child, distributes shoeboxes full of Christmas presents to needy children around the world and includes the Gospel message of Jesus Christ. We are already collecting small items that can be included in these boxes that the classes will be packing in class next week. Please be sure all items are sent into your child’s teacher as soon as possible.
Please contact your child’s teacher or our school office if you have any questions about the types of items you can send in. Remember that all items must be small enough to fit into a standard sized shoebox and cannot include candy, liquids, or “war” toys. Small stuffed animals, toiletry items (like toothbrushes, washcloths, and bar soap), and small school supplies can make great gifts.
