Great Bedtime Story Pajama Drive Kick OffWe will be kicking off our 2nd Annual Pajama Drive starting Dec. 3! Our goal is to collect 200 pairs of pajamas to donate to the Great Bedtime Story Pajama Drive through Scholastic Book Clubs.

Classrooms across America have collected and donated more than 730,000 pajamas since 2009.Here's what we need:
If we are able to reach our goal of 200 pairs of pajamas, the entire school will get to participate in our very own Pajama Day before Winter Break!
- Brand-new pajamas in all sizes, from newborn to adult
- Pajamas must be complete sets--a top and bottom or an appropriate nightgown
- Pajamas for all seasons, but especially for the winter months
Sor Juana Christmas Gift PartnershipSor Juana has once again partnered with a local law firm to provide gifts for students this Christmas! Later this week, you will find a Christmas Wish List in your student's Red Homework Folder that you can complete with your student should you like to participate. We would like to give the law firm as much time to go shopping as possible, so we are asking to have sheets returned by next Monday, November 25th. If you have a 2nd or 3rd grade student and you could use the additional support around the holidays, please feel free to complete this quick survey to nominate your student to be added to the Sor Juana Christmas Gift Partnership List.
