Click for a link to PEACHJAR:  
Look for an email on 8/27/15 from Peach Jar with the Newsletter.  I want to introduce you to a new digital service called Peach Jar. We want to reduce the amount of paper that we send home, and this service will allow us to email out notices, newsletters and other items in a paperless way. Because of this it is important that we have an email address on file so that we can send you these things. My goal is to have this newsletter sent out through peach jar by Christmas. Some people still really rely on the paper copies of things. If this is the case please contact the office and let us know if you want paper copies of this newsletter.
Here is the September Newsletter!
