*The Community Action Committee in conjunction with the GNTA will be hosting a Thanksgiving food drive to help benefit local families in need. In order to create a more unified and efficient food drive, we are asking that each homeroom focus on collecting its specific designated items. Please check with your child to find out his/her homeroom's assigned food item. This information will also be made accessible on each child's grade-specific Google Classroom. The deadline for all food donations will be Friday, November 17. As always, the CAC thanks you for your continued generosity and support.
