Dear Parents/Guardians,
Please join us for our wonderful annual Giving Tree Program on December 21, 2017. This school wide community service project provides an opportunity for our students to practice important character traits, such as generosity, kindness, compassion, and empathy.
Also, please help us with the collection of the new toys for this program. During the program, the toys donated in each class will be placed under the Giving Tree. Then, they will be given to MUST Ministries to help those children in need in this area. If you wish to donate a toy, please send in the new unwrapped toy to their teacher by Monday, December 18, 2017. Typically, girls in
each classroom bring in a gift for a girl (their age) and the boys bring in a gift for a boy (their age). There is no set price range for the new toy (Please see the following suggestions).
If you are able to attend, please arrive early and carpool if
possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me ( or 770-721-6470).
Thank you,
Rhonda Pettit, Ph.D., CSC
AMES School Counselor
