A devastating earthquake (7.8) struck Ecuador on April 16 in the evening, along with several tremors. Two of our teachers Señora Ford’s and Mr. Mueller's families live in Ecuador. While the earthquake did not kill any family members, many of their fellow citizens lost their lives (death toll is over 500 and rising) and many are injured (over 2500). The relief is already pouring into the country as the coast, primarily, struggles to clean up and rebuild after the devastation. As the Saint community has been very helpful in the past, we now ask for your help (as what you can spare) to help very needy communities in South America. A little money goes a very long way there.

Bethlehem Greenhouse is offering to share some profits with St. Stephens PTO again this year. All you have to do is shop there for all your plants and gifts (Mother's Day is coming up). When you check out, just tell them you are with St. Stephens PTO and we will get a % of the sales. It's a easy way to raise money for the school! Bethlehem Greenhouse has a great variety of plants - annuals, perennials, hanging baskets, vegetables, herbs etc. and resonable prices as well. You can shop there anytime from now through May 15th and the PTO will get credit.
