This holiday season G.C. Hartman students are being challenged to support the Catawissa and Elysburg food banks through a food drive that will last until Wednesday, December 12th. "Just like when the Grinch's heart grows when he performs a good deed, we are hoping our students' hearts grow as well by giving back to the community," stated Principal John Fetterman. In addition to the altruistic goals, the top grade in two grade spans, K-2 and grades 3-4, will be treated to a special snack and a movie in the Large Group Area. Donations to this cause are gladly accepted and can be dropped off at the school or given to any G.C. Hartman Elementary School student. Non-perishable, healthy, high-protein foods are especially wanted. Some examples include pasta, rice, canned goods, cereal, peanut butter, jelly, pasta sauce and tuna. Items that are damaged or past their expiration date cannot be accepted by the food banks.
Classroom visits by Principal John Fetterman, Elementary Secretary Denise Bebenek, and Guidance Counselor Eric Deeter promoting the food drive have generated much enthusiasm for this effort! Great job all!
