Show You Care, Leave a Pair!

Hi there from the Middle School Sock Rockers!
This year we are doing a sock drive for those who are homeless in Nelson.
Socks are important to keep feet and spirits warm.
Here’s how it works.
Please bring new, warm, adult-sized socks to the sock tree located outside Anne’s office and put them in the box under the tree.
In return you are welcome to take a sock ornament off the tree.


Art Starts

We have finished our Art Starts project which culminated in a sharing of each students accordion books and altered books. There is a poetry board in the 3rd floor hallway that will remain for creating poetry from the magnets that the students made over the course of the program.
