Holiday Food Drive, Thank You
A big “THANK YOU” to our very generous Glenmont community for contributing to the Bethlehem Food Drive! The students have been collecting canned goods in their classrooms since November.
Thanks, also, to our fifth grade team, Evan M., Anthony H., Sarah B., Darrell S., Aidan S., and Katelyn A., who collected all the food and household goods from the classrooms, and then assembled boxes with all the assorted items. Great job, everyone! - Mary Ellen Fusco.
