“We didn’t mean to make you cry!” But each bus driver was certainly moved to tears as they were handed a bag of personal thank you notes from the students at Lloyd Harbor School just days before the Thanksgiving holiday. One driver said, “I can’t read these now, I’m already crying and I need to drive this bus!” It was a day of heartfelt joy and humble surprises, as each group of staff members were given a bag full of thank you notes on “Gratitude Day” at LHS on November 22nd.
At the Jr./Sr. High School Madame Koob and Madame Reed, French Club advisors, are pleased to see their French students in grades 7-12 writing “notes de merci” to CSH staff members. They were happy to show their gratitude to the people who have greatly impacted their lives. The students’ sentiments certainly made their day during this holiday season.
The annual West Side Turkey Trot was enjoyed by all on a glorious fall day to kick-off the Thanksgiving Holiday! Thank you to Physical Education teacher Stephen Forbes, along with all the runners and the staff for organizing this long-standing West Side tradition. The student council also sponsored a Turkey Trot T-Shirt Contest, where drawings and designs were submitted by students.
The Junior High Robotics Club is excitedly learning in the wings, right across the hall from the Robotics Team, preparing to move up to high school level competition! They currently have approximately 17 members in 7th & 8th grade under the direction of club advisor and Engineering/Technology teacher, Jack Healy. Each week, the club tackles challenging projects ranging from stripping and building Lego robots, making Veterans Day pins, assembling robots from scratch ...and their favorite – flying drones!
A little Happy Thanksgiving “Where’s Waldo” fun from Ms. Gianna Andreacchi’s students at Goosehill. These clever creations were posted along the hallway as students pass by to see “I’m not a turkey, I’m a gumball machine!” Some other very clever disguises include Hannah Montana, a bowl of popcorn, a bat, an ice cream cone and even the Greatest Showman on Earth! You can’t help but smile!
The Junior High Natural Helpers program, under the direction of Guidance Counselor, Jennifer Pickering and Health teacher, Chris Homer, ran their annual 4 hour training on Nov 20th.
