On the morning of Thursday, December 20, AR Lord Elementary was bursting with holiday energy. Students were excited to head to the gym for their Christmas workshop where they would be creating their own decorations and Christmas cookies.
The entire day long event was organized, led and funded by DARLAA (Dr. AR Lord Alumni Assocication), a group of young 20-somethings who graduated from the school in the 90s and are committed to giving back to their elementary school. Over the past two years the alumni association has held 15 events and raised thousands of dollars for their little alma matre.
"This is such a special day for the children," said Susie Car, principal of AR Lord. "Not only is it a great festive way for them to get excited about the holidays, but these alumni also serve as role models for our students." Click here or below to view the photos.
