Tennyson Knolls Staff Help Community with a Thanksgiving Meal

On the Friday before Thanksgiving, the staff and teachers at Tennyson Knolls Elementary (TKE) Staff delivered all the items necessary for an entire Thanksgiving meal to 21 families in the community.

With the help of the Westminster Public Schools Foundation Benevolent Fund and donations from TKE employees and students, the school was able to share in the season of giving. The donations allowed families to celebrate Thanksgiving with traditional meals they were able to prepare in their own homes.

On November 22, staff and teachers drove around in the community to hand-deliver the baskets filled with all the fixings.

"This year we really wanted to do something special for our community,” said Principal Heather McGuire. “Our staff and students really stepped up to the plate to make sure some of our community members were able to have a nice Thanksgiving meal with their family."
