The holiday season is here, and now is the time to be thankful and show gratitude. Nativity Preparatory Academy is thankful to the generous donors and community members who help make our school’s tuition-free, Catholic education possible. With their help, Nativity continues to provide an exceptional education to students, positioning them for a lifetime of success. In keeping with the holiday theme this month, we would like to give special thanks to Hidden Heart Wreaths.

Beth Patterson, founder of Hidden Heart Wreaths, started making one-of-a-kind wreaths in 2019. In partnership with Whitehurst Ornaments, Hidden Heart Wreaths uses ornaments supplied by the company to make these unique creations.

Hidden Heart Wreaths is so excited to be supporting Nativity Preparatory Academy again this year,” said Beth Patterson. “I’m so happy to partner with Nativity and pour my talents, time, and gifts into the school.”

All proceeds from Hidden Heart wreath sales help to fund a variety of Nativity initiatives including the costs associated with providing a tuition-free, holistic middle school education.  So far, Hidden Heart Wreaths has raised $7,000 for Nativity through wreath sales, which has paid for 50% of one student’s tuition for an entire school year.

“Nativity is blessed to have Hidden Heart Wreaths among the many dedicated donors offering their support to our school,” said James C. Smith, Nativity President. “Thanks to their generosity, we are able to provide a premier education for our students. We couldn’t do it without them!”

Come and visit the Hidden Heart Wreaths pop-up sale on December 4, 2021, from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. at 1200 Scottsville Rd., Bldg. A (thanks to space donated by Gallina Development). A variety of beautifully hand-crafted wreaths will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
