In celebration for Thanksgiving, Kindergarten students at Blue Ridge Elementary spent a day preparing holiday foods and decorations. The event was celebrated with each class preparing a special dish to share with their classmates and guests. Sharing community spirit of appreciation and friendship was the Thanksgiving theme that the students celebrated, with song interpreted in sign language. Pictured above are Kindergarteners Alex Buchanan, Taylor Hall, Justina Cogswell with classroom aide, Mrs. Shashanna Rosa.
Blue Ridge Elementary students recently participated in their annual holiday school celebration with an afternoon of sharing. The activity is sponsored by the PTO and the Music Department to bring together the school community in order to make a special Christmas dinner happen for the needy in our community. The children gather together bearing gifts of food for festive holiday boxes that the PTO finishes off with the needed fixings for a holiday dinner and delivers to community families. The students look forward to the annual event with the enthusiasm to experience the true meaning of Christmas, the gift of sharing. Pictured above are Blue Ridge Students, Ilene and Heidi Fitch adding to the food boxes with the help of Program Coordinator, Liz Benedict, PTO President, Frida Giangreco and Principal, Bob Dietz.
