$1,000 Donation to the "Christi Thomas Student Library"
When Seneca East cancelled its gifted education program due to budget cuts, Christi started receiving her gifted services at Bridges. She loved going to Bridges on Fridays where she worked with wonderful staff members and made sweet friends. An elderly gentleman carved a beautiful sign and they officially named their student library the "Christi Thomas Student Library" in honor of Christi and her love of reading. (The Chatty Cathy Club also met there after lunch from what we are told.) This $1,000 donation from the Christi Thomas Memorial Fund will be used to purchase books for “Christi’s Corner” where they’d like to arrange some of Christi’s favorite titles and for other needed areas of the library.

I would have embarassed Christi by putting this darling little picture of her sitting on her potty chair as a two year old on her website, but.....I can do that now. I think it's precious!!
Here's wishing you and yours a great weekend! It's SHAYLAUARY and her 8th birthday weekend!
