SCHOOL AUCTION Fundraiser – THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED IN OUR CRUSADE FOR EDUCATION FUNDRAISER! If you have not picked up your winning items, please do so this week! In case you did not hear, the HOG donated by the VANDER WOUDES went to Mrs. Lillian Oliver, School Treasurer and Supporter since the school first opened! The TV, donated by BONNYCASTLE APPLIANCES, one of our SUPPORTING SPONSORS, went to Mr./Mrs. Bill Beavin, friends of the school! We are still calculating the totals, but feel quite confident that it was a HUGE SUCCESS! If you were unable to watch the videos posted on the auction website, you can still go to bit.ly/cfe20 and look under the Agenda tab to see them!

End-of-Year DRAWING – Some items, for whatever reason, did not make the auction site, so they will be entered in a drawing for the students. For a $1 donation, students could receive the following: 1) An “art”istic teen basket (water colors, sketchbook charcoal set, paint brushes, paint kit, and more!), a $50 gift card to Dairy Queen, a hand crafted wooden treasure box, a popcorn popper (with bowl and 5 good videos), and for Father’s Day, a certificate for wine tasting at Elk Creek for 2! We encourage all donations! Winners will be announced Thursday after morning prayer!

Summer Tutoring – Parents, Mrs. Cesare, Mr. Baughman, and Ms. Monica are all available for summer tutoring. Please contact Mrs. Fehder if you would like your child to have additional tutoring or if the teacher has requested additional tutoring for your child.
