    That’s a great idea to donate instead of gifts for Principal Appreciation Day. I’ve had other runner friends run the St Jude Marathon for the kids. 🙂

      I’m tempted to do it next year…this year’s is already booked up solid. Guess that’s a great thing for them!

      Yes–it’s easy to write about amazing people, isn’t it. I’ll send along your kind wishes.

    You are a ROCK STAR and a unbelievable Principle. Our family and St. Jude Hospital appreciate all that you do and continue to do. Little River Elementary School is fortunate to have you as their principle. And we are fortunate to have you as part of our family. We love you Christian,

      I agree completely! I actually just finished an interview with the current CEO of ALSAC, the fundraising arm for St. Jude, for #GivingTuesday, and we talked about how important people like Mr. Kirby are to St. Jude. I feel fortunate to know him and to have him in my daughter’s life as her principal. Best of luck to Andrew and your entire family!!
