Christmas Giving Tree Needs Your Help
Fountain Inn Elementary is sponsoring a Christmas Giving Tree for some needy students in the area. We created ornaments for each student regarding what they want, what they need, what to wear and what they like to read. These ornaments are on our Christmas Tree in the school lobby. If you or your group would like to help us purchase gifts for this Christmas season, either call 355-5100 or drop by and pick out your own ornament. All items are due back to the school by December 12.
