Because of each of you we were able to make the day of 350 families and 50 seniors, and we were able to raise over $40,000 this year. Raising this amount allowed us to spread holiday cheer to families that are in need. What a great feeling!
The dedication and sacrifice each of you made braving the cold weather to make this event a success was simply AMAZING. When I look at the energy, talent, dedication, and success of our students, I cannot help but say, “It comes from a great community and great people.”
We are always taught to lead by example; your display of compassion and caring on Saturday said it all. Hats off to the best community in the world!
As I end this message, I must issue a challenge--a challenge for each of you to “Pay it forward”. Don’t let Saturday be the end. Continue to look for ways to help others, and encourage people to do the same. Don’t let it end after the holiday, but continue well beyond the season.
I cannot express enough my gratitude for your support on Saturday and your continued support of this great district.
I wish you all happy holidays!
