As we approach the holiday season, our thoughts are with those in our school community who have fallen on hard times. We have been actively working with the Boone County United Way, The Caring Center, and several local benevolence agencies to assist in connecting families with ongoing and/or holiday support of meals, clothing, and financial assistance. Some of our partners have approaching deadlines for applications, so please don’t delay in reaching out.
