Universal Declaration of Human Rights: The class of 2022 invites the Exploris community to virtually attend our UDHR ceremony on Friday, December 10 at 9:00 AM. This is a time-honored tradition that every 8th grader at Exploris has taken part in for the past 20 years on the anniversary of the United Nations signing the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It is a wonderful, yearly reminder of the importance of human rights and your students have worked hard to memorize and prepare their part. Zoom Link.
Storage Options Needed! Pew Pew!
The elementary school is looking to store 2 church pews until the move to a new building. Do you have room in your attic or have access to a storage unit? If so, please contact Jessica Roberts at email@example.com

The gifts collection is going great so far. We are about halfway to our goal of $10,000.
Exploris Spiritwear is sold twice per year, in the fall and again in the spring. We had hoped to have all of the fall orders delivered by now, but unfortunately there have been delays from the company. We apologize for the delays.
Bay 6 has informed us that gray hoodies and youth gray long sleeve shirts are on back order/out of stock from their provider. Our contact is still looking into options for these items. Other items that have been ordered were available and should be ready for me to pick up by 12/7. Once sorted, I will bring them to students at school.
We will continue to post updates to the Parent Facebook page and the PTO blog. I will also send another follow up email when you can expect items to be delivered to school.
These delays are being experienced across many industries and are part of these strange times.
We are sorry for the long wait and appreciate your patience.
Martha Fisk, Spiritwear Committee Chair
