Students in Ms. Wetzler's kindergarten had fun making gingerbread houses and ornaments this afternoon.
Anyone who thinks that teachers may get paid too much should have volunteered for an hour today!

The family of Don Hooker would like to extend their sincere gratitude to all who helped with the fundraiser. Many people helped to prepare food, sold raffle tickets, put together silent auction items, and cleaned up afterwards. The event raised about $6000 to help Don with his medical bills. It is always refreshing to see our community help each other.
