Holiday Toy Project – A District Grant Project:

Under difficult Covid circumstances we were still able to have our Holiday Toy Project for the J Colin English Head Start Students.  We were able to provide each of 84 students with two toys, a pair of shoes, and an outfit, all were placed in bags for each family.  Since we couldn’t have Santa and Mrs. Claus come to the school, Zoom sessions were held with the students talking with Santa and Mrs. Claus.
