                       November and December Events
The Character Counts trait fot the next two months is Caring.  To show our support for this character trait, Garretson is running a canned food drive from November 4-December 18th.  All canned and dry foods will be donated to the Settlement House of Corona.  For the next two months, all Gators are also participating in, "10,000 Acts of Kindness."  Every grade level will be distributing colored ribbons that represent each and every act of kindness.  Our goal as a school is to reach 10,000 acts of kindness.  Please watch the colors on our back gate grow as we show our school and community how kind and caring acts make a difference at Garretson and within our community.
