I wanted to send you all off to begin your holiday break with a touching story of giving. This is truly what the season is all about, and McCall has risen to the occasion. I feel blessed to have a school family that understands the importance of giving back, and what that does for the soul.
In 2013, we gave to the US troops.
In 2014, we gave to Hope's Door to assist in the fight against domestic.
This year, we give to Safyre. Safyre Terry's father, sister and two brothers died in an unsolved New York arson house fire in 2013. The eight-year-old was the only survivor and was found shielded from the flames by her father, though she suffered burns to 75% of her body. The only thing this little girl wanted for Christmas were cards to fill up her entire Christmas tree.
Once I heard this story I couldn't stop thinking about what could be done. Mrs. Kimbriel and Mrs. Quinn graciously agreed to have the students make cards for Safyre during their art classes this week. I am so happy to announce that I will be mailing off 360 cards to brighten this little survivors Christmas!
Wishing you all the very best!
Thank you, Kelly
