This is the news from Prairie River Junior High School in High Prairie.
The PRJH Sewing Club is fundraising to make money for our next few wonderful projects. Using the leftover pieces from their ribbon skirts, the students have created a beautiful lap quilt. This quilt is being machine quilted by the amazingly talented Crazy Quilter, Marla Willier. Thank you, Marla, for helping us raise money. The tickets are $2 each. So PRJH families, send in $2 with your child for a ticket. This lap quilt would make a great Christmas gift for somebody!
The sewing club’s next project is rice heat bags. These bags are heated up in the microwave for four minutes and stay hot for over half an hour. They come with a cozy removable flannel cover. Each bag is $15. If you would like to pre-order one, please send your child in either with the $15 or the money can be transferred to the school. Just tag it Heat Bag.
We only have so much material, and we already have orders for 14. We can take orders for about 12 more so please let us know right away.
The Animal Care option is looking to collect donations for In The Woods Animal Shelter. They are looking for pet food, both wet and dry varieties, blankets, pet toys, etc. They are also collecting cash donations. All donations can be dropped off at the PRJH School.
