Dear Staff,

We are thrilled to announce that through our Toy Drive event, support from Community Partners as well as many amazing staff members and others, all Santa Bee Tags have been claimed and over 350 students will be supported this holiday season with gifts!

Monetary donations can be made to the Foundation to go towards the purchase of grocery gift cards for the 100 families.  

Be sure to list Toy Drive in the "Activity you are Participating in or would like to support box".

Santa will be making an early stop at the Pendergast District Office on Wednesday, December 20 from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm. All staff are welcome to stop by and join Santa and Dr. DeBlieux for hot chocolate, cookies and a picture with Santa.

I am here to serve you. Please let me know if I can be of any assistance.
