A Little Sunshine

Photograph compliments of The Lawrenceville Daily Record

Recently Lawrenceville High School senior
Mattie White took part in helping Parkside
first-graders make Sunshine Bags.  These gifts are
given to children entering local emergency rooms. 

Each bag is decorated by a pupil and filled with
crayons, doodle pads, and toys. A Sunshine Bag also
includes a letter of encouragement written by its maker. 

School officials said they appreciate the many
generous donations received for the project,
enabling first-graders to create a total of 150
Sunshine Bags.  2014 marks the 20th year of
children creating and being able to gift others.

Those Holiday Cookies!




#427 WONDER OF THE DAY:  
        "What's Your Favorite Holiday Cookie?"

We've been busy

Helping make those favorites 

 Or doing the official "taste-testing"

 For it wouldn't be
Christmas without cookies 

 A gingerbread house or two

For cookies make things special

So thanks to those faithful bakers

Who share so many of their sweet treats!

A Winter Concert

Holiday times with friends
 
 and concerts with Mr. Magee

start and end with lots of practice.

But oh, the beautiful music!

 Tunes that put us all

into the spirit of the season

while filling us with pride.

 Thanks for the memories
of a great evening at
PJHS, one filled with song!

This Holiday Season


#1129 WONDER OF THE DAY:  
"What Makes You Light Up Inside?"

 Could it be carrying on traditions?

 Or perhaps decorating with loved ones?

How about a special visit with Santa?

Is it glowing candlelight? 

 Or spending time with friends? 

 Is it being with your family?

 Maybe learning from the
special people we know and love.



We're thankful for all things
that "light up" our lives this holiday season.
