  • Dads’ Club Christmas Pajama Drive begins for the Primary Division on Monday, December 9th through Thursday, December 19th. The Primary Division has paired up with Scholastic Reading Club Great Bedtime Story Pajama Drive benefiting Pajama Program, a nonprofit organization that provides new pajamas and books to children in need-especially those living in group homes, shelters, foster care, and orphanages. Guidelines for the pajamas: Pajamas must be brand new.- Pajamas in all sizes are needed-from newborn to adult.- Pajamas must be in complete sets of nightgowns.- Pajamas in children’s sizes must be manufactured as pajamas-this ensures that they are flame-retardant and safe. We will have the cart decorated and outside for a simple drop off. Please make your child a part of this special pajama drive! To show our spirit, Primary Division students will be allowed to wear their pajamas to school on Thursday, December 19th.
