Our elementary students have been busy giving back to our community already this fall! Students in fifth and sixth grade have volunteered at the Food Pantry, helping in a variety of ways! You’re never too young to volunteer! Way to go!
Our annual Elementary School Fundraiser kicked off today! Students in K-6 will be coming home with packets that look like the photo shown. Proceeds from this fundraiser pay for Reading Counts incentives and Student Council activities such as field trips, playground equipment, science fair, and more! Thank you for supporting our students!
A big thank you to John Deere and Gooseneck Implement for coming to Garrison today. Dan Stadick made a presentation to students about John Deere Career opportunities and then presented a $2500 check to Garrison FFA. Thanks, Dan and Gooseneck Implement.
Teachers were invited to hold their staff meeting at the Garrison Area Resource Center’s Food Pantry and The Thrift Store today. We took this opportunity to learn more about this resource in our community and how we can best partner to help serve our students and families.
Thank you to Garrison State Bank and Trust for donating water bottles to our elementary students who may forget to bring their own every once in a while! As their first official duty, Fall Student Council President and Vice President Molly Jochim and Addyson Iglehart accepted the donation from Sundi Lagge.
