Congratulations to Tar River Elementary! Winners of the South Region of Give a Note~

Dear Ms. Turgeon, 

We were truly inspired by the video created by the students of Springdale Park Elementary.  Your community showed outstanding support for your program, but unfortunately, you did not win the South Division for the contest.  Please let your students know that we believe they are awesome.  As a semifinalist, your school will receive a plaque recognizing your accomplishment.

We wish you the best of luck and we know you will continue to inspire students.


Jane Mell Balek
Executive Director, Give a Note Foundation

While we did not win the contest I am proud of the work of our Springdale Park students and community! Huge congratulations to Tar River Elementary and their fantastic music teacher, Angela Mangum!
