LES Student Council is raising money for one of their community projects called Angel Tree, where they purchase gifts for children in the community.  This year we are having a "pie in you face" contest during Literacy Luau Night on Thursday, December 5th.  We are asking you to send any spare change or bills in and place it in the bucket of whom you would like to see get the pie in the face.  Money will be collected from Monday, December 2nd through Thursday, December 5th at 10:00 AM.  If you have any questions you can contact erin.newcomb@nwcs.k12.in.us or kylie.heckber@nwcs.k12.in.us.  Thanks for helping us with this community project.
