IT'S A FAMILY AFFAIR
James Matthews Elementary invited parents & families to have Thanksgiving lunch with their students the week before Thanksgiving. As a result of the invitation 145 tickets were redeemed as parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles came out to share a delicious meal with their student(s). The dining services staff at JMES prepared a wonderful, traditional Thanksgiving feast with all the trimmings. Dollarway wishes to thank all the families for their participation and support.
learning to serve
Coach Jones & EAST students, along with Ms. Dale and other Dollarway staff, coordinated with the local women's shelter to cater and serve a Thanksgiving meal to a number of its residents. Students were enthusiastic about the opportunity to prepare and share a delicious meal to women who have faced many challenges. The meal was provided by donations to the EAST "Change War" fundraising campaign.
