The KAYS went door-to-door this past Sunday, October 24th, for Trick-or-Treat So Others Can Eat. This project is an effort each year to help stock the food pantry for the holidays. The food pantry serves all of our Thunder Ridge Schools communities. Thank you to the community members who donated items and the students who donated their time!

Weekly Inspiration

Stop looking for reasons to be Unhappy. Focus on the things you DO have and the reasons you should be happy.

I hope you don’t let a little negativity keep you from seeing the good that also happened today!

If you’re able to make someone’s day, do it. The world needs more love.
