Its the community Im thankful for. These parents value education and instill that value in their kids. (Community members) are so supportive with their time and resources.

If you could give every child in the world a gift, what would it be and why?
Id probably give food and water to every child because without food and water you cant really live, and some people dont have that stuff.
Dylan Bissett, third-grader
Its good to help others by donating kids food and giving coats for cold children who do not have shelter."
Gracie Kuhn, fifth-grader
My gift would be to make sure all children have love.
Emily Dryer, educational assistant

What do you like most about winter?
I like how you can go outside and play in the snow and go sledding.
Ella Privatsky, second-grader
I like (winter) because you can make things out of snow, and you can have a snowball fight with your family.
