Under the direction of 5th grade English teacher Rachel Helton, Optional students used their writing and artistic talents to create holiday cards. These cards wish senior citizens living at Kennington Pointe and Dorothy House Alheimers Care facilities a Happy Thanksgiving. Grahamwood Elementary students wrote and illustrated nearly 100 cards that will be delivered by Ms. Helton before Thanksgiving. “I am very proud of the kind acts and empathy that our students share with people throughout our community,” stated Principal Pete Johnson. In addition to this project, students schoolwide are collecting cans for the Mid-South Food Bank’s “Feed the Need” campaign. Barrels of these donated foodstuffs will be delivered to the Mid-South Food Bank on December 19th in time to provide for many a holiday feast!
