APPLE presents Winterfest

You can easily sign up online and see details about food deliveries by clicking here. If you have any questions, please contact Rebecca Panos.

Ski equipment for sale in Depot
Have a growing kid who’s looking to hit the snow? Realize your ski boots are older than your child, and maybe that’s why the toes get cold? This fall we have a good selection of newer, but gently used skis and snowboards and boots for everyone in the Rummage Depot. To help you take advantage of the great deals, the Depot is open for shopping Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Please be aware the Rummage Depot cannot accept credit cards. Bring a check or cash for all purchases.

Information literacy and digital youth
The Wednesday, Nov. 18 Parents Association lecture will feature Katie Davis, Ph. D., of the University of Washington Information School. The doors will open at 6:30 p.m. for a chance to mingle; the lecture begins at 7 p.m. in the Upper School Kent Evans Auditorium. Dr. Davis is an expert on information literacy and digital youth. Along with Howard Gardner, she co-authored "The App Generation: How Today’s Youth Navigate Identity, Intimacy, and Imagination in a Digital World" (Yale University Press) and recently featured in a New York Times article. Join us for an illuminating evening on how to foster healthy relationships and creativity in your children.

The Exchange needs your dancing duds
Help! Lakeside’s pop-up formal shop The Exchange is set to open in mid-November, just in time to find the perfect outfit for Winter Ball. But before that can happen, we need you to donate those dresses, suits, shirts, shoes, and ties taking up space in your closets. Larger sizes and cool ties are really needed! Donations marked for The Exchange may be dropped off at the Rummage Depot (anytime it’s open). The Exchange will be open for students on Thursdays during activity period in the Pigott Arts Building.
