Tree is a Chart Topper at Noel November

Huddleston Elementary School’s After School Program “Topping the Charts” Christmas tree was a big hit at Noel November, taking second place at the annual fundraiser.

The 1950s themed tree featured spinning toy ornaments dangling from its branches along with CDs painted to resemble old 45-rpm records. A poodle skirt with finger-knitted poodle-clip dogs decorated the bottom.

After school programs at Robert J. Burch Elementary and Fayetteville Intermediate also had trees at the event. Proceeds benefitted The Joseph Sams School, the Breast Cancer Survivors Network, Embracing Military Families, and Promise Place.

“Community service is one of the components of the After School Program philosophy,” says Julia Simpson, the program director. “We know that out-of–school time is as important to children’s growth and development as time spent in the classroom. The after school curriculum is designed to compliment the educational component with a focus on character, health and fitness, and, most importantly, extended learning. This project enabled us to be part of a community effort to help others.”
