Christmas Spirit at Thunder Ridge

TR high schoolers decorated teachers’ doors last week to bring some Christmas spirit to the halls! There were many creative hands at work, and the teachers really appreciated their efforts!

Students also brought food and paper goods to block the doors of their teachers last Friday, Dec 8. Since they blocked all the doors in the school, no classes were held. Instead students got to enjoy a day of fun and games as a reward for their generous efforts! Several students and staff then took the donations to the food pantry. The ladies were extremely thankful for the amount collected!
