The Van Buren staff spent the last few nights personally delivering a special wrapped gift to each and every students’ house attending their campus. The purpose of such a special treat was for every student to feel loved, cared about and know that they matter to every staff member at Van Buren Elementary. Each wrapped book included a copy of ‘Twas Just Days Before Christmas adapted by Karey Thomas (a staff member) to include all staff names.
“When to our surprise there arose such a clatter,
It was Principal Marsh yelling… “WE TRULY MATTER!”
Away through the doorways we flew like a flash,
We raced to our houses, like a 50-yard dash.”
“The rooftops glistened with the new-fallen snow,
Mrs. Marsh greeted us with her smile all a glow.
When, what to our wondering eyes should appear,
All the VB teachers carrying gifts, hugs and tears.”
The act of kindness was well received by the Van Buren Family!
