For the Thanksgiving baskets this year, fifth grade will provide canned fruit. It is my hope that each student will bring in at least two cans for this drive. We have started a pyramid with the ones that have come in so far. In addition, families are encouraged to buy a turkey for these baskets. This can be done in the foyer before school or any time in the office. For those of you making deliveries, please pick up the basket after school on November 17th for delivery on the 18th or 19th.

I am thankful for my fifth graders and their families. What a blessing it is to be in this family of families.


Mrs. Getchman

Everyone deserves a standing ovation at least once in their life.
