Lower School Holiday Raffle

Our 2020 Lower School Holiday Raffle was a HUGE success! This year we raised an outstanding $1000 for Collective Collaboration Inc.! This local not-for-profit organization is dedicated to helping the homeless and mentally ill transition back into society. Ms. Karen Dickenson, founder and president of the organization, gave a heartfelt and sincere presentation at our Raffle Gathering on Tuesday, highlighting the importance of community support towards those who are in need. She emphasized respecting all of humanity, no matter our differences. Many thanks to teachers and administrators for donating lovely gifts and LS families for your support in this worthy cause.
