THE MOUNT AIRY Middle School staff wishes to thank the pupils and the Mount Airy community for supporting the "Toys for Tots Sock Hop" last month.

Even though the disc jockey was a no-show, PTSO President Robin Radoci reports, "The kids were wonderful, and everyone made the best of the situation. In the spirit of giving, when the Marines arrived, over 200 toys were donated."

Because of the pupils and staff who helped at the sock hop, Christmas morning was brighter for many children.
