Dear Addison community-
Anyone who has to cross Middlefield Road while walking, biking or scootering to school knows Judy, the crossing guard. I am sure all of you appreciate that she keeps you and your children safe on the way to and from school. Please consider donating whatever amount of money you can to show your appreciation to Judy this holiday season. By after school Tuesday (12/12/16), there will be a collection container in the Addison office (cash only please). If you find it hard to get into the office in person and you have a Paypal account, you may pay me directly via the "friends and family" link
If each Addison child gives even $1 to thank her, it would help her have a happy New Year. The money will be put toward a gift card and presented after school during the last week of school. We can accept donations up until school end on Monday Dec. 18. For the last two Decembers, the Addison community generously donated to this collection and Judy was very grateful.
Judy was featured a few years ago in a local newspaper article describing a local charity, The Christmas Fund. Judy was quoted as being thankful for the $35 she gets every year from the charity. She often puts the money toward some new gloves or boots, to help make her crossing guard salary and Social Security check stretch further. Since she does not get paid over the winter break holiday, a little extra this time of year from the Addison community really helps her out.
Best regards for a joyous winter season,
Amy Adams, Addison parent
