Four Oaks staff give students a special GIFT

Four Oaks staff members, in partnership with area businesses, provided over 75 students the opportunity to holiday shop for family members and others as part of the Giving Is Fun Too (GIFT) program. Staff members and businesses like Dollar General, Kraft, and even a local church provided over 650 gifts that students could purchase for $.25 each.

“This is a whole staff effort,” said Stacey Wirtz, Teacher of Behavior Disorders. “It gives us a great excitement to give students this opportunity.”

    Way to go Four Oaks!
    Thanks goes to the Teachers who work so hard and who are called to teach kids who need so much. I want to give a special thanks to my sister, Mary Jean Olson, who has done similar such “gifting” on her own in her own classroom for over 20 years.
    The students really enjoy receiving, but the gifting part is often so new to them. What a great way for everyone to learn the blessing of giving. Kevin

    Special thanks should also go to Stacey Wirtz, the Four Oaks Teacher, who lead the efforts of the Four Oaks teachers and para educators to make this a great Christmas for our students and their families.
