Serving The Community with Thanksgiving This Holiday Season

This year, as in the previous, we have served those in the community with the gift of a Thanksgiving box complete with turkey and all the trimmings. Ten boxes were prepared and the SRO Program supplied an additional three. With the help of the students and staff, we were able to assist those in need
 with a holiday meal at Horace O. Porter and Northfield Academy. 

Thanksgiving boxes

At Horace O. Porter School where we strive to educate and empower. Our primary focus is facilitating academic achievement as we provide services to promote college and career readiness. Financial fitness is addressed through a specialized presentation for our high school students. We place emphasis on the Seven Keys to College and Career readiness. Additional areas of focus for our students include, but are not limited to: healthy life style choices, drug and alcohol counseling, social media safety, and bullying and harassment prevention. Timely topics such as human trafficking are addressed when they arise. Group sessions target individual needs such as anger management, conflict resolution, abuse and neglect and family issues.
Our students not only have the opportunity to learn through community service learning, but they also receive resources from this same community. James Martin Sandra Grensberg James Martin     Sandra Grensberg
