Adopt-A-Classmate for Christmas

christmasDuring this Christmas Season we will be sponsoring our 19th annual “Adopt-A-Classmate for Christmas” program. This year, we are working with Perry-Helping-Perry to help those in need.

 Each class, grades kindergarten through fourth grade, will be “adopting” less fortunate children about the same age and grade as themselves for Christmas.  These adopted classmates arechildren within our own Perry Community.
