Holiday Helper Program Kicks Off!

Dear Brackett Families,                       

Every year our school comes together to provide gifts for Arlington children who would otherwise go without this holiday season. The program is run by the Town of Arlington with local organizations, Brackett being one, fulfilling the children's wishes. This year, Brackett is "adopting" the wishlists of 21 local kids. We would also like to provide grocery gift cards so the families can prepare a nice holiday meal.

We hope you will join us in selecting a gift(s) from the children's wishlists. Gifts are sorted by tabs for each grade so please click on your grade to find the gifts. We ask that you deliver the gift(s) UNWRAPPED to your child's classroom by Monday, December 3rd. Please include gift receipts and attach a label indicating who the gift is for (ie. Shirt for 5 year old boy N-1.) 

Don't have time to shop? We'll do it for you! You can PayPal a donation to Catherine Fenollosa ( or leave a check made out to Catherine Fenollosa in the school office. We will use the money to buy gifts off the wishlists.

Gift cards and checks should be left in the Holiday Helper folder in the school office.

The wishlists can be found here:

In the past, we've received heartfelt thank you notes from teenagers who are aware of the kindness of their Arlington community, and notes from little ones who were thrilled that there were presents just for them to open. 

We thank you in advance for your generosity!
