McIntosh Spanish students have traditionally participated in a holiday service project by donating presents to those who are less fortunate in our community. Again this year, donations will go to Holy Trinity Catholic Church. A boy, 10; a girl, 8; and a girl, 7 , and their parents will be receiving the generous donations from the students this year. The presents and donations will be delivered to the church on Dec. 13 after school.

Spanish teacher Ms. Maria Ramsey said, ” Last year, I was truly moved by how my students and their families generously donated so that these children do not go without. We are again participating in this worthy project. This year our adopted family has three children, one boy and two girls. Due to financial difficulties, there is no way for the parents to provide any kind of presents for them during the holidays. Our students are focused on providing this family in the best way possible.”

Freshman Spanish student Melody Clark said, “I think the Spanish teacher’s actions of giving gifts to others is a good, positive thing to do, especially during the holidays. It’s always good to spread cheer and love during the Christmas season.”
