Jane Ryan families can help raise money for Jane Ryan by purchasing items at Five Below, located at 1397 Boston Road Road, in Milford, between Nov. 29 and Dec. 26, every day of the week. Five Below will donate 10% of dollars spent by each Jane Ryan family back to Jane Ryan. They carry school supplies, software, books, electronics, sporting good, games and much more. Everything is priced at $5 or less. Don’t forget to bring the flier with you and present it to the cashier.

The Jane Ryan Student Council is sponsoring a Toy Drive from Dec. 2-13. Bring in a new, unwrapped toy to benefit the Yale-New Haven Children’s Hospital Toy Closet. A list of requested items went home on the flier in your child’s backpack. No donation is too small. All items donated are a way to help ease fears and expedite the recovery of children hospitalized during the holiday season. Boxes will be set up in the fifth grade hallway outside Mrs. Ferrari’s classroom 16B and on the downstairs level outside Mrs. DeCesare’s classroom 21.

Jane Ryan Family Night at Marisa’s will be on Tuesday, Dec. 10, from 5 p.m. until closing. All Jane Ryan families will receive 15% off their bill for the evening (eat in only) and Marisa’s will also make a donation to the school. Mrs. Bolton will serve as hostess. Just tell your server when you order that you are a Jane Ryan family to receive your discount.
