8th grade members of the Student Leader Corps at Island Trees Memorial Middle School spread a little holiday cheer to the patients on the pediatric ward at
Center on Wednesday, Dec. 12.
The students went room to room delivering wrapped
gifts for each of the patients that were generously donated by
teachers, parents and members of the Island Trees community.
gift, patients were also presented
with a pillowcase that was hand-made by children from the ConKerr
Cancer Foundation who themselves were once ill. The pillowcases also
contained a note to the children hoping to help raise their spirits
during their difficult time.
Following the gift giving,
the patients were all invited to join us in the playroom to paint, play
games and make holiday crafts.
A special thanks to Mrs. Samantha
Bunster for providing us with the pillowcases and for all those who
donated gifts and their time to help make this
holiday season a little brighter for some special children. It was an
experience that will be remembered by all.

Dr. Roger Bloom, Principal.
