Toys for Tots Collection
Preston Justice and Lindsay Parker drove a van to St. Egbert Catholic School to pick up the toys for delivery to Parker Honda, a Toys for Tots distribution site. Rudolph, the visiting reindeer, helped load all the toys in the Parker Honda van for our Toys for Tots distribution. The students sang Christmas songs, including "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" in honor of our visitors.

Thirty-year retired veteran, Master Gunnery Sergeant Paul McGowan, who served in the United States Marine Corps from 1986 until 2016, spoke to our St. Egbert students today. He explained the history of Toys for Tots and his involvement with the program. Master Gunnery Sergeant McGowan has served our country in a variety of ways including Desert Storm and multiple tours in Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as the Op’s Chief for the Wounded Warrior Battalion East, Camp LeJeune, Jacksonville, NC. We were honored by his visit and appreciate the time he shared visiting the students and classes.

Justice for All!
Each year our former teacher, Mrs. Toni Justice, hosts the lemonade stand during the month of September. This began years ago to help students recognize the contributions and sacrifices of our local first responders. The money raised is donated to our local fire and police departments. We appreciate Mayor Jones, Captain Stephens, and Officer Dixon attending our ceremony.
Lt. Col. DeMarco shared flag etiquette with our 5th grade class. We appreciate his service to our country and our school. Students have gained an appreciation for our flag and what patriotism really means.
