Holiday Resource List for our Families

We are excited to announce that we are offering a Community Drive-Thru Thanksgiving for our families on Friday, November 20th from 5-7pm. All the fixings and dessert will be provided in a safe and healthy atmosphere. Please follow all traffic attendants and traffic signals as you pass through the pick-up lanes. You will be greeted and we will take your dinner order from the convenience of your car. When ordering, be prepared to let your server know how many meals (turkey or ham) for your family members. Please wear a mask and inform your server of any food restrictions when ordering. Questions? Contact the Morley Nelson Community Center at (208) 854-4917 or email us at

We would like to thank our PTO for their generous contribution to our classroom educational supplies and for their continued support in our learning community. If you would like to get more involved and join our next Virtual PTO meeting on December 1st at 4:30pm, please email me at
