Holiday Shoppe
We wanted to thank all the children who participated in the Holiday Shoppe last week, and the families that funded their shopping. We hope the children had a good experience at the shop and that the gifts they selected for family members bring a lot of joy this holiday season. Thank you also to the volunteers who made this event possible! If you want to provide any feedback about the Holiday Shoppe please email

Swartz Winter Wonderland Dance
Thank you to all the parents who helped out at the Winter Wonderland dance for Swartz students this past Friday. We hope the children had a fun time dancing the night away!

Save the Date
The Taste of Dist. 48 event is on Monday, Jan. 23, 2017 which is only a couple of weeks after winter break. This popular event allows you to get samples from area restaurants and then vote on your favorites. It is $5/person or $20/family, which is a great value for the amount of food you get. Please be sure and mark this on your calendar!

FTC hopes all families in Dist. 48 have a wonderful holiday break!
