COAT, HAT, & MITTEN DRIVE: Clean out your closet for a good cause! Please bring your gently used coats, hats, gloves and scarves to Ivy Hill between November 7-11. We will be collecting the items in boxes in the commons area of the school. All donations will benefit POC (Partners for our Communities) which is run in cooperation with NCH Healthcare. POC works with the underserved population in our area.
PACK THE PIGGIES PRIZE!: The prize for this year’s Pack the Piggies fundraiser is a “Color Run” for Principal Kaese and Vice Principal Lempke. They will do a lap around the field outside the school and students will get to throw colored powder at them! The run will happen on Monday, November 7 at about 3pm. We are in need of adult volunteers to help setup color cups on Monday afternoon. Please check out the sign up link here if you are available.
DADS ON RECESS: Our popular activity “Dads on Recess” is returning with its next lunchtime recess event on Friday, November 11. If you’re interested in volunteering your time, please review the signup sheet HERE.
