Q: Does kids closet take clothes for high schoolers? And if they do who do I drop them off to?
A: No - We only have the one clothes closet & it is at the elementary school. The schools are closed, but I will be at the elementary next Monday (July 17) from 10 to 12 if you want to drop them off then. ~ Angela Bacon
Toledo Elementary School Principal Angela Bacon urges: Looking for something to positively engage your child?
Teacher Annie (Jones) is offering several summer classes & I would encourage anyone and everyone to take advantage of one or more of them.
Scholarships are available so don't let money stop you from doing something fun for your children.

If you can do more weeding than picking (more than a row) a small stipend can be offered.
Thank you!!! Call Aundrea 830-331-0410 to schedule a time.
