Dear <<First Name>>,

Getting Into the Christmas Spirit!

North Point's annual tree ornament ceremony was a wonderful time for students and teachers to come together at our respective campuses. Surrounded by their classmates, new teachers and students placed their ornaments on their campus tree symbolizing their bond to our school family. Adding the ornaments of our 58 new students to those of all the students of North Point to date, our trees at both campuses are overflowing. At Richmond Campus we have added a second tree!
