Angel Tree Items Due This Thursday, Dec. 6 
  • The Angel Tree supports our school families that need a little extra love and magic over the holidays. Families in need have filled out gift tags, and families who are interested in adopting an Angel Tree family then chose a tag and anonymously purchase the gifts requested by the family. Thanks to all who have adopted our angels! 
  • We are also including $25 Walmart gift cards for each family and are need of at least 10 more gift cards. If you are interested in purchasing a Walmart gift card, please contact Laura Patton at
  • All unwrapped items need to be clearly labeled and bagged together in one bag, if possible, and brought to school this Thursday, Dec. 6. 
  • Laura Patton will be there before school and again before noon to collect gifts.
  • Also, gifts can be dropped off in the counselor’s office – please contact Michelle Kelly in the front office for assistance. 
  • The gifts will be given to the families later in December.
  • If you have any questions or need to make arrangements for a different drop-off time, please contact Laura Patton at
