Give Rather Than Get

Davis-Thomas Elementary Middle School Giving Tree

Davis-Thomas Elementary Middle School Giving Tree2

Students at Davis-Thomas Elementary Middle School truly know the meaning of Christmas.

Instead of a gift exchange, students spear-headed donation drives. For the third year in a row, students donated money and products to local charities. Each class was asked to choose a charity and bring in items. The donations were put in the hall next to the students’ “Giving Tree” for all to remember in their hearts why they were doing this activity.
