Thanks to the many students, families, and teachers who donated underwear and socks to our drive to benefit homeless individuals. Pennekamp gathered 155 packages of socks and underwear! In addition, the PK PTA donated 95 pairs of Dragon-themed socks! The People Concern--our selected receiving agency--is very grateful to everyone at Pennekamp. It's nice to know we were able to offer a little help to some of the many housing-insecure individuals who are trying to get back on their feet and into stable housing. The winner of our raffle was Sophie R., in second grade--congratulations, Sophie, and enjoy Dav Pilkey's presentation tonight!

George stirred. "Forgive me, ma'am. I don't think that's true. Surely knowledge of every kind is vital to us in our battle with the Problem."
"Dear George, you are so very young." That husky laugh again. "I can see that such concepts might be difficult for you to grasp."
"No, George is right," Lockwood said. "George is always right. We shouldn't fear uncovering things that are shrouded in darkness. We should shine light on them. Like the lantern in your agency's logo. That's what an agent does, after all."
