Third grade students at GES have been learning about what it means to volunteer. They recently hosted a “Turkey Trot” to raise awareness of hunger in the Goochland community. Students in all grades sought pledges of canned goods for each lap they completed around the track. Third grade students made posters and morning announcements before the event to boost participation among their peers.
Third graders were very excited when the canned goods came in earlier this week. This was part of the school’s G21 project of making connections with community. Congratulations to the GES Third Grade. Well done, folks! Pictures of the event can be seen on Mrs. Parker’s Blog.
