Jenny’s Penguin Patch
The PTG is sponsoring a fundraiser/holiday shopping opportunity for students through Jenny’s Penguin Patch. Students are encouraged in the coming weeks to start earning and saving money to secretly shop for loved ones at school during the first part of December. Items for purchase typically range from $0.25 to $10.
From this experience, students learn the joy of giving and are allowed to shop in a safe and convenient place… all the while contributing to a fundraiser that benefits their school.
31st Annual Hands Across Northeast
Students, staff and community members are invited to donate towards the purchase of food, clothing and toys as gifts for deserving families in our district. Donations can be sent to the elementary school office or to a student’s teacher. (Make checks payable to NEB Elementary School.)
For each donation received, a decoration will be added to the elementary school halls as a reminder of the spirit of giving.
The fundraising activity will culminate on Friday, Dec. 15 at 2:15 pm – when elementary school students and staff assemble in the front of the building to join hands in a circle and sing Christmas carols to commemorate this special time of year. Community members are welcome to take part.
