Bringing cheer

THOMASVILLE — MacIntyre Park Middle School eighth graders took a break from the school day by bringing holiday cheer to Scott Elementary kindergartners Tuesday. The eighth graders even dressed up as Christmas elves to make the experience  memorable for the kindergartners.

Jesse Woodcock, MPMS social studies teacher, sponsored the eighth graders. Woodcock received toys from the Army National Guard and distributed the gifts to the eighth graders who sorted and wrapped all the gifts. Each student was in charge of wrapping two gifts.

Woodcock, a member of the 876th Engineers Army National Guard unit out of Toccoa, and Rebecca Ramsey coordinated the event with Scott Elementary.

“I just wanted to give back to my TCS family and show the Kindergarten Scottie's a taste of Christmas cheer,” Woodcock said.

Bill Settle, president of MPMS, was very proud of his students.

“Seeing our students being engaged in such a caring event is just another reason I am proud to be part of the MPMS family,” Settle said. “We have the best students in the world at MPMS.”

Greg Thomas, Kelia Tillman, Daytaveya Brown, Kamia Massey, Quinntellar Cameron, Yasmine Wilkinson, Jamilla Hobbs, Marquis Scott, Maurice Millhouse, Lakayla Fulton, Justice Jones, Curtis Douglas, Isaac Hill, Cameron James, Shandrious Collins, Michael Gardner, Armani Bell, Sharond Dumas, Shakima Lawson, Jesse Snipes, Ty’Nay Wadley, Ayanna Robinson, Shatavia Williams, Jada McNeil, Journee Jones and Tamara Cooksey were the 26 eighth graders involved.

“I wanted to bring smiles to the faces of the toddlers,” Jesse Snipes said.  

Quinnteller Cameron added, “I enjoyed the way their faces lit up.”

To show appreciation for their act of kindness, the Scott kindergartners sang three Christmas carols for the eighth graders.
