Weekly Scoop for Nov. 23, 2015

Are you planning on taking advantage of any deals on Black Friday or CyberMonday? If you go through our eScrip Online Mall, they will donate a portion of your sale to the Glen Haven PTA. Amazon, Target and the Disney store all have deals.

Do you have any old, dried out magic markers or highlighters in your house? Don’t just throw them away! Between Nov. 3 and 30, Glen Haven will be collecting markers as part of the Crayola Color Cycle program. There will be a box near the main office for the collection. This is a great way for students to be good citizens and explore eco-friendly practices.

This Week:
Wednesday – Early release
Thursday – NO SCHOOL! Happy Thanksgiving
Friday– NO SCHOOL!

A Look Ahead:
