“Project Undershare” Collection for Homeless Students in Rockford
Jamie Zussman and MSSG are sponsoring a collection for “Project Undershare” in hopes of helping homeless youth in Rockford. The middle school will be collecting bars of soap, shampoo bottles, toothpaste, toothbrushes, school supplies, new socks, new t-shirts, and new underwear for Rockford’s homeless students. The collection began last week and we will continue to collect donations until Friday, March 15th. We are so very fortunate at Keith. Please consider donating a few items to help out our local students in need. Hotel soaps and shampoos are especially needed. Items can be dropped off at the Upper School office or in Mrs. Burns’ classroom. Thank you for your help and consideration!

The Keith staff will be enjoying some time away from the office during spring break. Please note all offices will be on shortened hours, open from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Mondays through Thursdays.

There will be no Parent Weekly Notes distributed on March 14. Enjoy your spring break!
