This afternoon, your child is bringing home a water bottle that was donated by State Farm. The bottle will have your child's first initial and last name printed on it. We encourage you to wash the water bottle; and, allow your child to bring the filled bottle to school with them daily. If your child has another water bottle that they are currently using, they may continue to do so. Thank you, again, to Lee Tuxhorn State Farm Agency for his donation.
