A Time To Give Thanks

This week, Gary D. Wright Elementary School's Third Grade Students performed a music concert entitled, "A Time To Give Thanks".  In addition to singing about my favorite Thanksgiving food, mashed potatoes, the students shared with the audience those things that they are most thankful for. In keeping with this theme, I would like to share how thankful I am this holiday season to be part of such a caring learning community.  I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!

GDW Collects Box Tops for Education

Did you know that Gary D. Wright Elementary School collects Box Tops For Education?  Every Box Top you collect and send in to school is worth 10¢ to Gary D. Wright Elementary School, and that money really adds up!  Our school collects Box Tops year-round.  As an extra incentive for bringing in Box Tops, Gary D. Wright Elementary School will conduct monthly raffles where each Box Top entered into the raffle will provide students with a chance to earn cool prizes!  Raffle prizes will include “Lunch with Mrs. Gravel, Dr. Unruh,  and a Friend”, school spirit wear, gift cards, and more.  For each Box Top, we are asking that students place their name on the back, which will serve as their ticket to be entered into the raffle. Please place Box Tops in an envelope or baggie and send them in to your child’s classroom teacher.  Every Box Top counts, so even if you have one, please send it in!

Thank you in advance for your continued support of our school and the Box Tops For Education Program!
