It’s Show Your Support Week at the Ann Arbor PTO Thrift Shop
Visit the Ann Arbor PTO Thrift Shop this week to show your support for Haisley. Shop November 9-15, and a percentage of the thrift shop's profits will be given to Haisley enrichment groups.  The more participation from the Haisley community, the higher percentage we receive.

The shop is full of crafting supplies, clothing for all sizes, furniture, toys, books, and many other treasures.  So think about all of those Pinterest crafts you've been pinning, what clothing items you or your little ones need for the cold weather, and the stack of books and games you will want handy for the snow days and holiday breaks.  Come in and find what you need this week at the Ann Arbor Thrift Shop, located at 2280 S. Industrial Hwy.

Stuffed Animal Drive
The Kindergarteners and Young 5’s are collecting NON-Talking, NON-noise making stuffed animals for Emergency Agencies to give to children who need to feel safe during emergency situations.  Collection boxes are outside of all the Kindergarten classrooms.  This service project will wrap up on Nov. 25th.  Thank you!
