Giving

Sponsored by the Parents Association and organized by the first grade, the snowflake campaign suggests that in lieu of holiday gifts for faculty and staff, students consider purchasing “snowflakes” to show their appreciation. Each snowflake costs $2, and all proceeds collected were included in the donation to Beverly Bootstraps. Glen Urquhart School is in Beverly.
