The Newton South holiday gift drive is underway for families that need help providing Christmas gifts for their children. Students in many advisories have signed up to bring in a gift for a child, and have chosen an appropriate present based on the child’s age, gender, and clothing size. Thank you to parents for facilitating your child in this endeavor, whether it was driving to a store or funding the gift. Students have been excited to bring in their gifts and show each other what they have chosen. We can see that giving makes our students feel good, and will make another child warm and happy.
This week students continue to wrap gifts. We need parent help for this activity during J block, starting at 2:20 pm on Monday Dec. 15, Wednesday Dec. 17, and Thursday, Dec. 18. There is a lot to do. If you want to join and help on any of these days, please email either Marianne Marks at firstname.lastname@example.org or Jane Quinn at email@example.com
