School Spirit Re­cap

CardMaker - - Readers Reach Out -

Teacher as­sis­tant, Lana Sharp shared, “I learned about the Read­ers Reach Out School Spirit cam­paign and wanted to share my story.

Dur­ing a study hall pe­riod, the stu­dents and I were dis­cussing a “Spread Christ­mas Cheer” idea and came up with a plan to make Christ­mas cards for our en­tire high school staff and stu­dents. The stu­dents got per­mis­sion from our prin­ci­pal and the plan was a “Go!” That week­end I talked with a friend who makes cards. She had learned of our plan from her daugh­ters and vol­un­teered to help the stu­dents with this project and do­nated the sup­plies that we'd need. The ex­cite­ment spread like wild­fire. The stu­dents re­ally en­joyed mak­ing the Christ­mas cards!

On the day of de­liv­ery—right be­fore the Christ­mas break—“Santa,” in his red suit and white beard, along with his “elves” ar­rived to hand­de­liver his bag full of 710 hand­made cards! This was a great mem­ory and the staff and stu­dents were so ap­pre­cia­tive to re­ceive the cards. My stu­dents were able to wit­ness for them­selves that it is bet­ter to give than to re­ceive.”
