Every year when the weather turns cold, students in Ronald Brown Academy put up “The Giving Tree.” The tree, which stands in the front lobby, is not full of lights and ornaments, but decorated for warmth with hats, gloves, scarves, and socks for children in need. This year, donations were solicited from outside the school as well as from within. MGM Grand Casino, ABC Transportation and Ronald Brown Academy staff have generously donated to ensure the students stay safe and warm for the season. Students from each classroom took a trip to the Giving Tree to select items they needed.
“We want to ensure that all of our students stay safe and warm throughout the winter season,” says teacher Jessica Rollins. “The added bonus is that it provides a valuable opportunity for our students to participate in giving back to the community – a lesson that never gets old!”
