CRAM THE CRIB
Catholic Order of Foresters is collecting items for "mommy baskets" for the Rose Garden Mission. Items will be collected in each classroom from May 1 through May 10. The class with the most items collected will win an ice cream party. Suggested items include diapers, baby toys, clothes, shampoo, food, baby wipes and more diapers. Items for the moms are also needed such as tooth paste, toothbrushes, and other personal care items. Items for toddlers are also welcomed. Help us Cram the Crib by May 10th! See Flyer at http://mqhschool.com/currentNews/wednesdayEnvelope/attachments/CramtheCrib.pdf
We will provide "collection" laundry baskets for each classroom. Students should put their items in their classroom basket. Each class will keep track of their items. We will also have a crib in the hallway next to the library. Once the items are counted by the class, they can be put in the crib. One package counts as one item; i.e. a pack of diapers is one item, not the number of individual diapers. Thanks for your support!
