On Thursday, January 26th many members of our Haggerty Community came out to support our 5th grader's mission to go on a 2-night field trip to the Farm School in Athol, MA. This is an annual field trip, that they need some additional funding for so that every fifth grader can attend, regardless of their ability to pay. In this effort, our 5th graders made homemade meatballs, sauce, spaghetti, and a delicious salad - as well as brownies for dessert. There was a also a fun raffle - mainly filled with lots of highly coveted staff prizes! Thanks to all of the staff members who donate their time and energy to create these prizes! Thanks also to the many local companies who donated prizes to help support our 5th grader's cause. Special gratitude, to our local Mt. Auburn Star Market for donating all of the meat for our meatballs!
We extend gratitude to all the families who bought raffle tickets! If you happen to have won one of our prizes, you would have already been contacted by Lissa. Thanks also to those who were able to attend the dinner! Our fifth graders are very grateful and excited for their upcoming trip in February!
