Dolphin Giving Tree
Thank you to everyone already  participating in our school's Adopt a Dolphin 
Giving Tree. There have been a few more dolphin shaped ornaments added to the tree with a child's gift wish on each one. The tree is located in the front office.  If you select an ornament, please log in your contact information in the book located under the tree.   Gifts should be returned unwrapped in a shopping bag or gift bag. Please tag the gift with the ornament you selected, or the code on the ornament, and return it to our school's guidance department by December 18. Thank you so much for supporting Mabry  students this holiday season.

Holiday Shoppe Success!
Thank you to our entire Mabry community for your support of our first Winter Wonderland Gift Shoppe.  Thank you to the teachers for your patience as we worked through some of the kinks hosting a new program entails!  Overall, it was a wonderful success!  The holiday shoppe helped carry our school's focus this year on character development that Kindness Counts!  As a service project, so many of our Mabry students were able to experience the spirit of giving.  We have heard some wonderful stories  from teachers and parents.  To continue the giving, the committee will use half of the proceeds from the shoppe to purchase holiday gifts for local children in need and donate them to Metropolitan Ministries Toy Drive this season.
