BUFFALO — It been said that if we ask we shall receive and that’s how Buffalo Elementary School got a new Christmas tree.
Assistant Principal Ashley Reece said the school got its new Christmas tree courtesy of the generosity of a local store whose management she approached about the school’s need for a new Christmas tree.
“We wanted a new, big, beautiful Christmas tree,” Reece said Thursday morning. “I went to Walmart and asked them for one for the children and they gladly gave us one.”
Reece said that the tree, which she said is 7 1/2 feet tall, was then decorated by the school’s teachers.
“We got together and decorated the ornaments with the name of each teacher,” Reece said.
Reece thanked Walmart for the tree, pointing out that the school will be able to use it well into the future.
“We’re very grateful,” Reece said. “We can use it for years to come.”
Principal Glenn Wile also thanked Walmart, adding that the students love the new Christmas tree.
“The children love coming in and seeing the new tree,” Wile said. “We are just so grateful to Walmart for supporting our school. They are very generous to us.”
