More than 50 Quail Valley Elementary School (QVE) students, staff and families demonstrated joyful giving by adopting the residents of Park Manor of Quail Valley, a nursing and rehabilitation home, during the holiday season. The QVE group donated items (such as word search books, unscented lotions, puzzles and stationary) and wrapped the gifts before delivering them to the Park Manor residents. They also went caroling along the facilty hallways to spread holiday cheer.

“We understand that one of the greatest gifts we can share with others is the spirit of giving,” said Shenique Spears, assistant principal at Quail Valley Elementary School. “Many students are so focused on what they will receive during the holiday season that they never experience the true meaning of the season, which is the kindness and gratitude we give to others.”

“I really enjoyed sharing in this experience with my daughter,” said QVE parent, Tracy Garner. “It was a valuable teaching moment on the importance of giving back to the community.”
