Hannah Westcott got engaged Thursday night to her boyfriend Nate.

Denyse McGrath and her family were awarded a year long lease on a new vehicle courtesy of a STAR 94 radio contest that her daughter Hayden entered. The radio station did this to honor military families. What happened to their old van is a funny story that Denyse can share.

Adrian Hower put on a wonderful holiday show last night at Dacula High School. Thank you for making Mulberry come alive with music the past month. Between the kindergarten and first grade concert, Holiday Hotcakes, Gladiators night, and the musical it has been a tremendous amount of work!

Thank you!

This has been an amazing first half of the school year. I appreciate the hard work and dedication of everyone and know that you all are what makes Mulberry great. Enjoy the break from school, and I hope everyone has a wonderful break.

One last funny clip before you all leave. This is how Jennifer and I were dealing with kids today in the office.
