Last spring you were asked to keep in mind that in the fall there would be an event at school where winter outer wear would be available for those needing it. Joann Roehl, Elementary School Counselor, said that the Family Fun Fest will be held November 3rd this year. We are trying to get the winter clothes, that are often requested on the Giving Tree tags, to those who need them earlier in the cold season. So if your children have outgrown or you are at garage sales, please bring clean, gently used coats, boots, snow pants, hats, mittens, and scarves for students 4K-12th grade to Christ the King by Sunday, October 30th . There will be a labeled box for them in the “North Parking Lot Entrance” in the coat rack area. Questions call Carol Sallee at 715-255-8158
