Today is a half day, buses will be dismissing at 11:30am. It's Crazy Hair and Crazy Hat day today at L.E. Shaw!! We hope many people had a chance to pick up a dental hygiene item for the food bank. Representatives from the food bank will be at our Assembly Friday morning at 8:30am to accept the donations. What a great idea from our kids for kids.
