Gotta brag....

Please forgive me for bragging, but I just gotta!
Once again I have the most wonderful students in the whole world and they came up with such a fabulous idea that I was taken aback. We make these adorable fleece hats every year for a quick, fun project and one day while we were sewing someone said 'Hey, Mrs. S, we should make some of these hats for homeless people'. And our community project was born. We decided to make hats to sale at school, then use the proceeds to buy more material to make hats to donate. My amazingly generous students cut & stitched & fringed for 4 days, made 150 hats, then within 3 days every hat was sold! We earned a little over $500 profit and will donate about 50 hats to a local charity. Now Y'all, that's what I call real Christmas Spirit. I am so proud of these kids!
