Hispanic Heritage Month
On October 10 we had a visit from Puerto Rico. Mrs. García is from Puerto Rico and she share with 5th grade her heritage. She brougth her family from Puerto Rico and the students experienced a little bit of their culture. Also the pop opera signer Ruthmarie visited us. She talked to our 5th grade class and sang to them. It was an cultural and great experience that the students are never going to forget.

Students at Gaines Academy generously donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Pennies for Pasta campaign. We surpassed our school goal of $2,000 with a grand total of $2,700 being donated to help local blood cancer patients with their treatments and hopefully find a cure. Ms. Lenaiah Wood’s second grade class collected the most donations and were treated to a delicious luncheon by Olive Garden. Pictured enjoying their pasta are David Hernandez (L) and Pierre Jerome (R).
