5. CareNet bottle drive ends Friday, February 23rd

There are just a few days left to bring in change for the Central Vermont Pregnancy Center. This is a low maintenance fundraiser we participate in each year to help support this local ministry. All you need to do is bring in loose change, bills, or even a check made out to CVPC and add it to the giant baby bottle in the sanctuary. This helps support women facing unplanned pregnancies, with information, material resources, and support. Every coin counts!

Battle of the Books is underway! We currently have several students reading, reading, reading! Each student entering the battle has until March 15th to complete the books on the list for their grade level.
