Holiday Letters to Veterans

Ms. O'Reilly's 7th grade advisory group, as part of the Grade 7-12 push to "Pay it Forward", wrote letters to military veterans, currently deployed men and women and wounded warriors.  All letters were mailed to Operation Gratitude, a group who will distribute to military personnel.  The students asked how the soldiers celebrate the holidays, thanked them for their service and wished them a Merry Christmas.  All students included their addresses so they are hoping for a letter in return.

No Gifts for the Teacher, Please!

This year's 2nd graders brought donations for the Zumbrota Area Food Shelf instead of bringing their teacher a gift. What a great way to share during the holidays! 

Sharing the During the Holiday Season

The halls are full of holiday cheer as students collect for the needy, make blankets, and construct gingerbread houses.See pictures of the 6th grade delivering to Zumbrota Health Services and the 3rd grade donating supplies to the Ronald McDonald House - see it all by clicking here!

Holiday Meal at ZM

Lunchtime Solutions sponsored a family holiday meal   December 17 for grades K-6—what a great turnout!  Many parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles arrived to eat with their special student. Smiles abounded in the lunchrooms and the food was great!! More pictures here.

Fruit Sale Winners

Mr. Cordes' third grade class was the big winner in the FFA fruit sales this year - students raised over $4,000, which is enough money to sponsor 15 families during the holidays. See how they were rewarded here.
