Holiday Luncheon Luncheon<p>​On Thursday, December 17, our grade 6-8 students celebrated the coming holidays with our 4<sup>th</sup> Annual Turkey Luncheon.  This is a special day where our staff and students get together as a Hawks' family and enjoy a formal Turkey dinner.  We would like to thank all our volunteers and staff who worked tirelessly in organizing, purchasing, and preparing the food for this event.  We would also like to thank Lesley Martin who donated the carrots and potatoes.  Without the help and support of these amazing people, we would not have been able to provide this experience for our students.​<a href="/PublishingImages/Lists/LocalNews/AllItems/Turkey%20Dinner.jpg"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/15/images/icjpg.gif" alt="" />Turkey Dinner.jpg</a><a href="/PublishingImages/Lists/LocalNews/AllItems/Turkey%20Dinner.jpeg"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/15/images/icjpeg.gif" alt="" />Turkey Dinner.jpeg</a><a href="/PublishingImages/Lists/LocalNews/AllItems/Turkey%20Dinner2.jpg"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/15/images/icjpg.gif" alt="" />Turkey Dinner2.jpg</a><a href="/PublishingImages/Lists/LocalNews/AllItems/Turkey%20Dinner%203.jpg"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/15/images/icjpg.gif" alt="" />Turkey Dinner 3.jpg</a><a href="/PublishingImages/Lists/LocalNews/AllItems/Turkey%20Dinner%20-%20de%20Groot%20and%20Packard.jpeg"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/15/images/icjpeg.gif" alt="" />Turkey Dinner - de Groot and Packard.jpeg</a></p>
