Hello, Dade County!
I love the gift of a letter. Don't you? I am still reflecting on the generous spirit displayed by the good people of Dade County during the holiday season. Our students are kind and thoughtful. We are teaching our young people to notice others and care about them. You may have heard about one of our students named Landyn Barton. He is a generous young man. Read this email from his Teacher, Lee Ann Gibson(DES):
"I wanted to take a second to let you know about one of my Kinder students and his project for White Christmas. Landyn Barton sold homemade cookies to teachers and candy canes to students to raise money for toys for White Christmas. He will be presenting the money he raised to Sheriff Cross. At last count, he had raised almost $175. This little guy represents a truly "generous" heart."
Landyn is shown with his Character Award for "Generosity" while presenting his generous gift to Sheriff Ray Cross. From left to right: Board Chair Carolyn Bradford, Dr. Jan Harris, Landyn, Sheriff Cross and Principal Tracy Blevins.
Landon makes me want to be a better person. We are proud of you, Landyn!
Make it a great day!
