Students at Abraham Lincoln Voted on Election Day

Students at Abraham Lincoln voted on Election Day for one of the most important issues our new president should work on; including taking care of the environment, good education for everyone, keeping people healthy, adding more new businesses, or new jobs for people that aren't working. Principal Linda Schweikhofer announced the results on Wednesday morning.  The most votes were for "taking care of the environment."

The students had a great time voting, learned a lot and were excited to hear the results of their voting.

Hadley Junior High Builders Club  "We Build Leaders"

Congratulations to the Hadley Builders Club for celebrating their fourth year of service! They have already been very busy this year. In the month of September, Builders Club students held a bake sale and raised $127 for Breast Cancer Awareness.  In October, students helped raise money for UNICEF to help immunize children.

The Builders Club members have more planned through the end of the year. This month, Builders Club students generously donated their time to offer free babysitting during parent/teacher conferences at Hadley and are planning to work concessions and hallway duty during the Hadley Speech Team tournament. In December, they will have the opportunity to create care packages for cancer patients through an organization called Phil's Friends.  Students will be providing support and hope for cancer patients. If you would like more information about Builders Club, contact Robin Bollinger at rbollinger@d41.org.

This group of students are dedicated to service and we applaud them! Thank you Hadley Builders Club.
