Baker PTO Giving Tree 2020

The Baker PTO would like to shower the Baker staff with appreciation for the holiday season. Please see the sign up genius below for ways to donate!

Have you ever wished you could give a gift to your student's teacher or the staff at Baker for the holidays? It's a bit overwhelming when each kid has 6 teachers in middle school! We thought as a community we could work together to make our Baker teachers and staff feel the love, especially this year!!!

We hope you will join us in showering our Baker teachers and staff with gifts! Just sign up using our Sign Up Genius.

** You have 2 opportunities to drop off your gift cards. December 15 and 16 from 4-6 pm at the Baker front doors in the cirucular drive. We'll be sitting warm in our cars! If these dates don't work, please email Becky Stencel at beckystencel@yahoo.com. **

Thank you and Happy Holidays!
