Please note, the scheduled Town Hall Meeting on Skillman & 43rd Ave Street Redesign at Sunnyside Community Services for tomorrow evening has been postponed until January.

I had very much hoped we would be able to meet tomorrow evening to discuss these plans and look forward to gathering in January.
- 6th Grade Fundraising to Help Raise Money for Off Grid Relief
Help us to Help others
6th graders are conducting a fundraiser to help raise money for Off Grid Relief. Off Grid Relief is a non-profit fundraising effort that is raising money to provide homes in Puerto Rico with a complete solar kit. 80% of Puerto Rico has been without power since Hurricane Maria hit the island in September. Off the Grid designed a simple solar kit that not only helps families in dire need right now, but supports solar energy for long term use as well.
Here is how you can help: from now until December 22, 2017, our senior 6th graders will be collecting donations, there is no amount too big or too small. We will compile the donations and help get these solar kits into the hands of families who are in need of our help! For more information please click: Off-Grid-Link
Donation forms have also been sent home to all our students. Thank you.

We appreciate your collaboration. Thank you.
