Get energized on the evening of December 1st with Pizza and Puccini as you listen to the famous Loredana Ruggiero perform songs from Italian operas. It will make you want to buy a plane ticket to Tuscany.

Stoddert Elementary is having its blow-out winter celebration at the school on Saturday December 10th from 2-4. Meet Santa, donate toys, drop off holiday letters for cancer patients (the letters do wonders, take some time to write one) and a whole lot of other fun activities for the students.
