McNeil Canyon Elementary:

The Annual Beach Coast Walk and School Ground Clean-Up Day will be held on Friday, Sept. 22. Please turn in your child’s permission slip as soon as possible. Students will need a sack lunch, (or order one from the school kitchen), rubber boots, warm coat and rain gear.

All students will travel by bus into Homer and clean up beaches as part of the Coast Walk organized by the Center for Alaska Coastal Studies. They will be returning to McNeil before the end of the school day. With the help of students, parents and staff, our goal is to collect 1,000 pounds of garbage on Friday.

Parent helpers are needed to help with this event to: accompany classes to town to help watch the students as they do their clean-up, take gathered bags of trash to the landfill and get them weighed. Contact Laura in the office or your child’s teacher if you can help.

Garage Sale in three weeks: Joanna’s class will be holding a Garage Sale at McNeil on Sat., Oct. 7. You will get a clean, dry room to sell your items. It is $15 rent for half of a table and $25 for a full table. We will also have a 6th grade table for those of you with clean items in good shape that you would like to donate to our fundraiser. A bake sale will be held in conjunction and we welcome donations for that as well. Please contact Laura Sheldon at the school to reserve your table now.
