Giving BackThis time of year it is so important to be thankful for all we have and to give back when we can. I thank all of you who found it in your hearts to volunteer your time at Candle Tea for Home Moravian Church. I volunteered twice last week and loved every moment of it. My husband and I worked the front door Saturday night and it was my job to talk to the people in line. I met many wonderful and interesting people. Even though some of them had been in line for over two hours, they were happy and cheerful. One man let me know that he has been coming to Candle Tea for 41 years. He said it wouldn't seem like Christmas without the trip. I met people from Greensboro, Hillsboro, Advance, Ashville and Ashboro and on and on. I even saw a few of my colleagues from other schools. It was indeed heartwarming and I know that we are all so thankful to have Home Church as our partner. Remember that we will be putting together food bags this afternoon in room 200 to be given to our families in need after the nutcracker. I hope to see as many of you there to help as possible. We will have several volunteers from the church. I am so thankful for a caring and supportive staff. You keep on giving and keeping children as the important focus of all you do. I appreciate you.
The "Nutcracker" is Coming!This is the week we have all been waiting for. Our Arts Team has been working feverishly day and night to produce what will be a spectacular event! Miss Stevenson and Ms. Farthing have been rehearsing the songs and dances, Mrs. Gordon has worked on the props and they are incredible. The rest of the team has also done much work to ensure the show is a success. I know everyone will be here (PTA Night) to support our students. Remember that we have a dress rehearsal this Thursday at 1:00. I will need some volunteers to assist with crowd control and giving out tickets. Thanks team:)
