Happy Thanksgiving Break

Happy Thanksgiving Break – We earned it Loggers!!! Be thankful for our many blessings and take some time next week to reflect upon the needs of those less fortunate than we.

Also in the Spirit of Thanksgiving, Upon learning that a fellow student had lost everything in an apartment fire last week – several Eureka High School students led by Justine Trepanier and Ashley Jordan have inspirationally “Loggered Up!” Such a tragedy made the donation of a Thanksgiving gift basket much more relevant. In addition to a Thanksgiving dinner, our students have started to collect the everyday items that this family will need to get back on their feet. Upon learning that a Logger family needs financial help to turn on the water and PG&E, our students established a goal of providing enough funds to turn on the lights and paying a month’s rent. If you care to assist, contact Mr. Ron Perry, Instructor EHS EAST Lab – 707-476-1632
