Werner is carrying on the special tradition of The Giving Tree this holiday season.  This is an opportunity to help families at Werner who need a little bit extra during this holiday season.

If you would like to give, please look for an ornament tag on The Giving Tree in the front office. Each ornament tag has an item that is needed or wished for by a child (or their sibling) in our school community.  Please choose the gifts you would like to purchase, wrap the items and attach the ornament tag and return them to the office by Monday, December 16th at the latest.  Be sure to sign the clipboard at Mrs. Whetsell’s desk to let us know which ornament tag you are taking. For questions about this project, please contact Tracee Carcasson, PTA Community Service Chair at (970)231-5197.

If your family needs a little assistance this holiday season for your children, please contact Julie Flemister (School Counselor) or Jenny Whetsell (School Secretary) at 488-5550.  Julie or Jenny can get you the form to fill out with a couple of gift wish items for your children.  Please know your children’s names will remain anonymous and private with only a select few staff members at Werner. 

Together we can make this holiday season a special time for all of the children in our school family.  Thank you for supporting The Giving Tree!
