Shoals Elementary students from Christi Arington’s academically or intellectually gifted class classes enjoyed a morning of shopping for Christmas Angels recently.

Her fourth- and fifth-graders, along with Surry County Sheriff Graham Atkinson, teachers, and volunteers recently spent part of a day at Walmart shopping through the store, picking up items listed by Christmas Angels from the Angel tree.

These students raised money for their shopping trip by doing chores around the house. After shopping the students had a mini concert of Christmas music for the volunteers.
