Art Portfolios!

1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, K

Art portfolios have been coming home for the last week or so and the children are very excited! I hope they have been doing their homework by having an Art Show for their families! It is such an exciting and visual way to see how your child has grown this year in so many ways. Their art skills have improved, ideas have become more complex, and even the way they write their name has changed from August until now! Please take a moment to enjoy the creative adventures your child has experienced this year and the amazing artwork created along the way!

We are asking for donations of new toys and new clothing (boy and girl sizes 0-16) for the "forgotten angels." These items will go toward the children who are not adopted from the Angel Tree during the 2016 holidays. They are called “Forgotten Angels”, and every year approximately 2,000 Nashville children fall into this category. Your donation will provide a deserving child with a special gift to open during the holidays!

Please place the unwrapped gifts in the Percy Priest lobby (in the box provided). The drive has started and will end on Friday, December 2nd.

Thank you so much for making a positive difference in a child's life this holiday season!!

We appreciate the many donations we have already received! THANK YOU!
