6. Surround Ms. Ashley with love this holiday season
As the Giving Season is upon us, one of our very own teachers needs a little love. Between multiple surgeries within the last two years for both her husband and her son Chase, Ms. Ashley of 3rd grade needs just a little extra love and support this year. Her husband has just had hip replacement surgery and will be recovering for the next 2 – 3 months, her son, Chase also has had his own surgeries, requiring time off work and therapy sessions for the entire family.
