Dr. K's thought for today:
* Courage does not always roar, sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow." - Mary Ann Radmacher
* "Life is mostly froth and bubbles. Two things stand like stone. Kindness in another's trouble, courage in your own." - Adam Lindsay Gordon

Mrs. McKinnon:
The Thanksgiving Food Drive starts tomorrow and is sponsored by the Social Service Administration of Ridgewood (SSA).  They are making Thanksgiving bags for families and requesting that GW students and families donate canned corn and chicken broth (only), or Shop Rite or Stop & Shop gift cards.  There will be collection boxes at both entrances, and a cooler set up outside by the main entrance for virtual students.  Gift cards will be collected in the main office.  If every student and staff member brought in one item, we would have over 700 food items.  Imagine that!  The food  drive starts 10/28 and ends 11/17 (a week earlier than usual this year).  Please donate!

Mr. Piacenza:
Visit the GW site to learn about the teachers and staff of GW.  New videos are now available for Mrs. Cannon and Mrs. Stadulis.  Check it out at
