The annual Food Can Drive before Thanksgiving, organized by the John Lewis Childs School Student Council in collaboration with advisers Mrs. Hyland and Ms. Butrico, was a tremendous success by collecting more than 300 cans of food. These contributions were generously donated to a local food pantry.

Sixth graders in Mrs. Foley's math classes have been working on their chapter about ratios. Students completed ratio tables to develop ordered pairs to plot on two coordinate planes. In addition, they needed to create equivalent ratios to design two other grids. Their work is inspired by the artist, Sol LeWitt, whose art included various mathematical concepts.
