After I presented the school with the packages, The school band -- played --- well, lets call it squeeked outJingle Bells.Then they invited everyone to sing Silent Night!Thank god for small ones -- Mrs. S made her students take the packages to near her classroom for distribution to the other teachers.I hand delivered some of the specific items to these teachers, I goteverything from hugs to kisses on the cheek to "Hey Santa" to "you really are an angel sent to us!"Upon returning one time -- I caught the kids diving head first into the pencils and beanie babies! Ms. S then decided the kids were helping "a little too much!"I opened the box of backpacks and then something funny happened -- Ms. S dived head first into the box!!!"I definately have a use for those!""Really?""Yes, I have a small boy who's father was just placed in prison! -- Since they had no money coming in --they were just tossed out of their home and placed into a homeless shelter! The county is sending him and his sister to school IN A CAB FROM THE SHELTER!"She then sent around a list to see if any other teachers had anystudents which needed 'assistance' --- They had 9 students -- WE HAD 9 BACKPACKS!!They got filled with notebooks, paper, crayons, pencils, pens, activity books, scissors, glue sticks, erasers, mini staplers, beanie babies, construction paper, little books to read, hygiene items, hair bands...You get the picture!"Just tell them that they are from Santa, Ms S.""Nope, they are from Santa's FOOLISH ELVES, JEFF"With that being said, gave her a hug and left for home!!YOU ALL DID DAMN GOOD IN MY BOOK!!!!!Give you all an A++++++!!!!!!!!!Jeffstill tearing up over this!!!
