Put your hats on!! Parents and friends... We're partnering with the McDonald County Sheriff's Department to help those in need this Christmas Season. 🎄 The Department's The Shop with a Hero program is raising money to buy Christmas gifts for children whose families may not be able to provide them this year. They have a goal of helping 200 families. Please help us raise money for this wonderful program by letting your student wear a hat 🧢 to school with a $1 donation on Wednesday, December 1st. This applies to all schools and all campuses. Let's show how much we care for every child, every day, whatever it takes this Holiday Season! 💕 🤲
