Dear Community:

Tomorrow is Veterans Day, and the district would like to thank all of the Veterans for their service to our country.

PTO Update: The PTO is funding a Thanksgiving Feast for the kids during lunch on the 22nd – turkey, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, apple pie and more! We are seeking volunteers to help Mrs. Ashley with the prep starting at 9:30am on the 22nd – please email worthingtonpto.ma@gmail.com if you are interested in volunteering! The community-wide Thanksgiving dinner has been canceled for this year. The Worthington School District PTO is now a registered public 501c3 non-profit, so all donations are tax-deductible and we can more broadly raise funds to help our wonderful school. Thanks to Mark Corner for the work!
