Holiday spirit rings through Jarvis

Take a peek at Jarvis Middle School’s holiday happenings:

First Annual Regifted Rummage Sale

Faculty and staff from throughout the district donated a wide variety of wonderful unwanted/unneeded items. Students could purchase affordable gifts for family and friends, priced from $.25 to $5. Cash was never an issue—students could earn coupons for store credit. Many students volunteered their time to work as cashiers and gift wrappers. The sale raised more than $190 for Drama and Yearbook clubs…and raised holiday spirit.
