Byrneville Elementary Principal Wrapped Up After Big School Fundraiser

December 17, 2020

The Byrneville Elementary School PTO far exceeded its fundraising goal on Wednesday, and Principal Dee Wolfe-Sullivan was all wrapped up in the excitement.

Literally wrapped up. As in Christmas wrap. With a bow on top.

The PTO at the small school had set a modest goal of $250 to see the principal gift-wrapped, but the finally tally from the event was $2,050.

Since the school topped their goal, Mrs. Sullivan kept her promise of being wrapped from head to toe in Christmas wrapping paper.

The top students were able to help wrap their principal, while the remainder of the students watched live video in their room  or at home for virtual students.

    The article and the lovely comments that followed are a wonderful, very special Christmas present for me, and I thank all involved; but the real story is that my wonderful students and families showed so much support for our school. What a wonderful community is Byrneville and its surrounding area!

    AMAZING woman and educator. Her passion and dedication is unmatched. The influence she had on me as a young man I still try to carry until this very day. What a great story.

    My bride has taught and administered her whole adult life from and with love, and realizing that is what made me fall in love with her in the first place — and she loved getting wrapped. Though, I may add, this goal reward is a bit less demanding than kissing the pig a few years ago.

    This is really great! I remember doing this stuff in elementary school, and I am so glad that the coronavirus has not stopped them from having fun and raising lots of money for a good cause. Congratulations to everyone involved!

    I know the children had a ball wrapping up their Principal Dee Wolfe-Sullivan. It’s great they can still have some fun. Congratulations on the total of the Big Fundraiser. This is a great school for learning and lots of awesome people that work here.
