Thanks: Community kudos for Blanche Charles carnival

November 21, 2001

On behalf of the students, parents and teachers of Blanche Charles Elementary School we would like to extend our sincere gratitude to the following merchants who contributed to the success of our Halloween carnival and our student recognition/rewards program.

We would like to thank Coca-Cola, Costco, Garcia Foods, Hometown Buffet, Imperial Stores, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Rally's, Sizzler, Super Shopping, Twin City Pets, Wal-Mart and Wonder Bread for their donations, certificates and continued support of our students and parents.

We also would like to extend our warmest thanks to the managers of these establishments for the hospitality they have extended to our school site council parents.

We feel that our community, parents and merchants are the cornerstone to the education of our students. Our parents at Blanche Charles Elementary School have been very dedicated in their quest for support for our programs at our school. They have mentioned how these merchants have always been generous to their request without any hesitation. Ultimately, our students have benefitted from these generous contributions.


Our annual Halloween carnival, which provided games and food for our students, was a resounding success. Our student recognition/rewards program also has been a success by providing students who have exhibited academic excellence, perfect attendance, citizenship, and good behavior with certificates, ribbons, bumper stickers, pencils, backpacks and prizes.

These rewards and recognitions motivate our students to excel to their fullest potential. As has been said, "It takes a community to educate a child."
