From Kaitlyn:

We are so lucky here at North Chatham to live in a community that wants to help support our students and their families as the holidays approach. I will be going to the Nature Trail Community Center on Tuesday December 18th to help with organizing and distributing gifts for the Holiday season. If you would like to participate/help just let me know and what time(s). Because we have such a great community, we thought it would be a great idea to sign and give them a thank you card for their hard work. There will be TWO Cards in the mailroom for you to sign on Monday. Please take a moment and sign your name on EITHER one. One card will have presents on the front, the other an owl in a Santa hat. I will take the card with me to Nature Trail on Tuesday. Thanks!!
