Prussing Giving Tree

The Giving Tree is back!

The PTO is proud to announce the annual Giving Tree project will begin the week of 11/26. The giving tree revolves around the idea that every small act of kindness can have a huge impact if we work together. Like the branches of a tree that grow full, so can the spirit of giving!

Keep an eye out next week for a flier with your child’s classroom’s needs. If your family would like to contribute, please fulfill the request and bring a handprint leaf back. Your family’s generosity will be recognized outside the main office!

This project will run from 11/26-12/21. Feel free to reach out with any questions at prussingelementarypto@gmail.com
