Buddy Lunch

Buddy lunch Exchange!  On Tuesday Nov. 21st, at 11:30 “Big and Little Buddies” will be showing their appreciation for one another by bringing a personalized lunch to exchange with each other.  Buddies will eat and play together.  We have found this to be a fun activity that helps our students  appreciate the act of giving and receiving in a special way.

Prado Day Center Donations

Tracy Owen, a former parent and liaison for the Prado Day Center is coordinating a coat drive and breakfast items donations for the homeless in our area.  One item donated per family would be such a great help to the Center.  Please put any items you may be donating in a box or bag labeled Prado and leave them by the office, thank you!
