I know this because the incident happened just out- side my office door, the door was open, and I heard it. Also, immediately after the incident, the substitute teacher went directly to the cafeteria with the child and stayed there. I know this because I was with her to help with the child's lunch. He was fine, just as if nothing had hap- pened. Ms. Smith came to the cafeteria to check on the child.

Featured happenings at Trees on Parade are The Mistletoe Market, Live Tree Auction and 'Show Me the Money Tree.' The Mistletoe Market isa silent auction with over 100 items donated by local businesses and individ- uals. Included are items that would be great for stocking stuffers, such as gift certifi- cates, or things that can't even fit under the tree, like weekend getaways! Programs with all auction items will be available at the door the evening of the ben- efit. At 10 p.m., the Liye Auction ' will begin with 10 decorated trees in 4' and 6' sizes. Every tree is sponsored by local businesses and dec- orated in various themes by locai talent. Another high- light of the evening is the 'Show Me the Money Tree.' One $5 raffle ticket could be the winner of $1,000 donated by local doctors and a Christmas tree decorated in the money theme. The announcement of this winner will be made at 11 p.m. The fun won't end there! PAPA, a -local band, will be helping everyone put on, or kick off, their dancing shoes! The band will begin playing at 8:00 p.m. and will contin- ue throughout the evening. Trees on Parade is a won- derful way to kick off the sea- son of giving. So, come join us for some holiday cheer and help us give back to our com- munity by supporting our local charities. 10 Winn Dixie Ddve Newnan, Ga 770-252.2202 Fax Resumes 770-252-2421 wv, nN.chasestaffing.com EOE Coach Glover (the parent) to tell him what had happened.
