We are having some issues with older students bringing perfume and scented hairspray to school.  Many of our students, and some of our staff, have allergies to these products.

Please do not send these products to school going forward. 

Teachers will also be having a conversation with students regarding this matter.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Thanks to your incredible generosity, we have successfully collected $510.00 for our Blessing Bag initiative! The funds gathered will now be utilized to assemble Blessing Bags over the next couple of weeks at the school. These thoughtfully prepared bags will be filled with essential items and necessities to bring comfort and warmth to those in need. We plan to deliver these Blessing Bags to Siloam Mission later this month. Once again, thank you for your incredible support. It is heartening to witness the power of our community coming together to spread kindness. We will keep you updated on the progress of the Blessing Bag initiative and look forward to sharing the impact we make together.
