All School:

The National Honor Society received this letter of thanks for our entire community.  NHS would like to share
the letter with everyone and say Thank You for helping to make a difference in people's lives.
Dear Mrs. Amstutz, Honor Society, School and community and to all who participate in The Giving Tree.
Our family would like to say a huge thank you to all of you for making our spirits bright this Christmas.  We
could not possibly express our gratitude with words for how happy you have made every one of us this 
Christmas!  But we can promise you that we will pay the kindness forward.  You are all a great example of 
human kindness and compassion in our community, and we believe the Giving Tree is a powerful tool in 
restoring people's faith in humanity, with helpfulness, togetherness and compassion.  Especially during the
hardships our world is currently facing.  With that said, we would like to thank you all once again for the best
Christmas!!  Wishing you all much love and light!
