This week we highlight the generations of North Branch Middle Schoolers who, for 15 years, have energetically and enthusiastically volunteered with the Nelson County Pantry.

On this #GratiTUdESDAY, here is a photo of Sarah, long-term sub in Primary Yellow, with the quilted pillow the class made for her as a thank you. The best news is that the Primary Yellow group will get to spend classroom time with both Summer and Sarah throughout the rest of 2018.

Wonderful new books to read are high on the North Branch #GratiTUdESDAY list. The staff at Nelson Memorial Library gave our students 14 books published in 2017 as part of the Nelson Reads program. Classes are reading and discussing each book and will help select the Nelson Reads Book of the Year. #loveyourlibrary #northbranch2017
