Recently, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, students at Thomas J. Lahey Elementary School collected food for families in need. HACO conducted a school-wide Thanksgiving drive, and almost everyone donated at least one item.

In addition to this drive, Ms. Marie Fenter’s third-grade class collected more items to put together individual baskets for families in need.

“Monday was World Kindness Day, and when I asked my students what they wanted to do, they said they wanted to give food to the poor,” said Ms. Marie Fenter. “It was very heartwarming.”

Once the baskets were put together, students wrote down reasons they were thankful on orange strips of paper, and created 3D pumpkins out of them.

“I’m thankful that my grandma is coming for Thanksgiving,” said third-grader Isla. “I don’t get to see her a lot, but she’s coming for the holiday, and I’m excited!”
