I would like to thank all families from the community who came to our breakfast with Santa event, sponsored by the Shirley PTA.

It was wonderful to see so many community members coming out to attend our event. People coming together makes events like this so successful!

We served a full breakfast to 180 people of all ages. The breakfast was delicious, thanks to our lunch staff at the Shirley Middle School. Many children were kept busy with the variety of crafts projects available.

We raised $111 at our raffle table. The Loaves & Fishes collection box filled up quickly with non-perishables. Shirley Friendship Fund collected $146 and the money went directly to the people in charge of the fund.

Thank you, Santa, for sitting with the children for photos and for greeting the children. Thank you to Susan Lambert for the red suit!

A thanks to all who volunteered their time and effort the night before and the morning of the event. A special thanks to Bonnie Faulkner, the chairperson for this event, who did a great job organizing and preparing.

Parents still have the chance to pick up gift giving ideas for your child’s classroom teacher. During the month of December, teacher wish list ornaments will be left on Christmas trees at each school for student gift giving ideas.

The PTA wishes everyone a wonderful holiday season!
