From the Board of Education: Gratitude

As we approach the holiday season, some community members may be feeling an economic impact on their daily lives. Thankfully, we have many amazing resources available to support families in our community.

The Giving Tree is an organization serving students and families in the Howard-Suamico School District, including senior citizens that reside within the villages of Howard and Suamico.

These community members receive everything from food to guidance in the other resources that may help with their financial burden. The first big event of the school year helped more than 600 students with pre-filled backpacks and school supplies.

The next big event on December 13 and 14 will be the Holiday Store designed to help nearly 500 students in the District whose families are registered with The Giving Tree.

Our students have been hard at work this school year displaying gratitude. Forest Glen students wrote letters, drew pictures, and sent care packages to Fort Hood Soldiers. Bay View students from Apollo House spent time cleaning up the Suamico Cemetery and placing flags on Veterans’ graves. Kindergarten students at Bay Harbor Elementary made cards for a lady that celebrated her 104th birthday.

If you or someone you know needs help in our community, please contact one of these great organizations. They are always looking for volunteers and donations.
