Each grade level has adopted one cause, and is accepting donations on Wednesday, September 26 for the following organizations:

  • Kindergarten Families - Pregnancy Center of Okeechobee or Trails of Hope Animal Rescue, Inc.
  • First Grade Families - Men of Distinction
  • Second Grade Families - Big Lake Missions
  • Third Grade Families - Arnold's Wildlife
  • Fourth Grade Families - Pregnancy Center of Okeechobee
  • Fifth Grade Families - Select a non-profit listed above to help the one of your choice.

Teachers will send specific grade level information in your child's agenda this week.

Let’s make this a great week!
Go Tigers!
