Our HSA puts up a Christmas tree in the lobby of the school. The tree is decorated with balls made by our school’s Girl Scout troop. On each ball is an item that is needed by a teacher for the classroom; parents have the option of taking a ball off the tree and purchasing the item for the classroom and school. The gifts benefit all the children, and the teachers get useful Christmas gifts.
