Thoughts from Mrs. Turner...
Polar Express at the Primary
Mr. Sparkles the Elf Returns
Warm Hands, Warm Heart & Full Tummies!
We are decorating our campus Christmas Tree when we return from Thanksgiving Break with unused / new: Mittens, Gloves, Scarves, Hats or toboggans. All of the collected “winter wear” will be donated to the House of Hope in Longview. Please send the unused items to school by Tuesday, Dec. 10.
We are also collecting canned goods to place them under our campus Christmas Tree! Bring canned goods to place under the tree by Tuesday Dec. 10. Canned goods will also go to stock the pantry at House of Hope in Longview.
Letters to Santa Generate $1.00 to Make a Wish Foundation!
It’s the MOST magical time of the year! Macy’s Department stores has partnered with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to donate $1.00 for EVERY LETTER sent to Santa Claus!
Spring Hill Primary is joining in on the Christmas spirit by writing letters to Santa! Other children or adults in the home can also write a letter to Santa! All letters collected at Spring Hill Primary will be taken to Macy’s Department Store in Dallas, Texas on December 22nd (Letters due here on Dec. 21st)! Macy’s Department store will mail all of the letters to Santa on our behalf AND donate $1.00 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation for each and every letter written!
Letters are due to the Spring Hill Primary “Santa Mail Slot” by December 21st. Classes will be writing letters to Santa at school. However, we have attached a letter to Santa that your family can write and bring to SH Primary to be taken to Macy’s with our campus letters if you choose to!
