CLASS HELPS UNICEF
Students in our class raised $165.25 for Unicef this Halloween. As a result, Mr. Chittenden lost a few more hairs on his head when student teacher Mr. Myaard provided him with a haircut in class.

Mr. Chittenden presents former Lake Hills’ student Jordan Chusid with the UNICEF collection boxes after his special haircut. Thank you for your support of kids helping kids.

SNOW CAMP DATE SET
Outdoor Education is always an integral part of the fifth grade experience at Lake Hills. Both of our classes will be attending Snow Camp at the YMCA Camp Pendalouan on January 30-31. Tuition cost is only $45 and includes transportation, meals, and all activities. Many students have already raised sufficient funding through the recent chocolate candy bar sales.

PTA FOOD DRIVE
The annual PTA Thanksgiving Drive begins on Monday, November 6. Students may bring non-perishable food items to school until Friday, November 17. Items will be distributed to local families the week before Thanksgiving.
