EVERYBODY COUNTS COMMITTEE:  Everybody Counts week is coming November 14-18.  Everybody Counts is a program designed to teach children about various disabilities and how children with these challenges cope with them.  The goal is to teach understanding and help the children look for the person behind the disability, while creating a climate in which we all feel at ease with our differences.  Each presentation will offer the children an opportunity to experience what it would be like to cope with a disability.  Would you like the opportunity to lead your child’s class in this experience?  A script will be provided, and there are typically 4-5 volunteers who share each presentation.  Please contact Kristina Dreyer (kristinadreyer@yahoo.com) to be added to our volunteer list.  When the dates and times are confirmed for each grade level, we’ll follow up with you to confirm your availability for those times.  Also, Everybody Counts Committee is in need of clean, empty gallon milk jugs.  Please drop these off in the office if you have any.

HOLIDAY GIFT SHOP:  Calling all crafters, adults & kids.  Do you craft, sew, knit, make jewelry, etc.?  If so, all are welcome at the 2016 Holiday Gift Shop at Ivy Hill on Saturday, Dec 3rd.  Start working on your inventory now! More info to come.  *Open to Ivy Hill students only.  Questions –  contact Kelly Nix kelly.nix630@gmail.com
