Newsletter for November 25th

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s):

As the holiday season quickly approaches, I pray that everyone has an opportunity to spend time with family and friends, and forget about the other stresses that life may present. This is a time to give thanks for everything we have, and there is nothing more valuable then our faith, family, and friends. Have a Happy Thanksgiving.

If students bring in a dollar donation for the assigned class period each day over the next two weeks, that class period will be stalled, but more importantly we will be able to help families of Delphos that are less fortunate this Christmas Season. Grades 7 through 12 will be participating, if you can donate it would be appreciated.
