This December, our students and their families will be participating in The Family Giving Tree service project. Outside of the main office in Hayden Hall, the elementary students (with an assist from SPA) have decorated the annual Stanbridge Giving Tree. Every paper tag ornament on the tree represents the wish of a child, teenager or adult from our greater community that is in need of some holiday cheer. Each gift or donation will be delivered to an agency that works directly with those in need this holiday season. The Family Giving Tree organization makes this all happen with host groups like Stanbridge Academy.
There are three easy ways to support this project:
All gifts are due under the tree by December 9th and will be brought to the Family Giving Tree warehouse on Saturday, December 10th by a small group of Junior High and High School volunteers. On that same day the students will volunteer their time for three hours from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in support of this wonderful organization’s efforts.
*Update: Deadline extended. Gifts will be accepted up until 3:00 p.m. on Monday, December 12th.
Lastly just come by to relax and admire our school’s holiday decorations and tree. Posters made by our junior high students are currently advertising the Giving Tree project throughout the campus and Hayden Hall is decked for the holidays. It's that time of year again--let's celebrate the season!
Thanksgiving Break has begun! No school for the rest of the week; see everybody again on Monday, Nov. 28th.
Until then, enjoy a safe, happy holiday with friends and family. From all of us at Stanbridge, Happy Thanksgiving!
