Our Greenback Baskets of Hope, organized by Laura Overholt, helped spread kindness and generosity by providing a Thanksgiving meal for 42 families in our community. Thank you to Robin Cagle and your church for helping put this together, organizing the drop-offs and providing the turkeys. Also, thank you to FFA, HOSA, ProjectAble, the Band and many Greenback teachers for helping in Greenback Baskets of Hope.
Congratulations to our lady soccer team all county team: Anna Morris, Jenna McConnell, Julianna Fox, Kierra Bishop and Angelita Astudillo. Also, congrats to our Greenback Football Team for being Class 1A State Runner Up and for Holden Willis being chosen Mr. Football for our division. We are all so proud of this football team and the effort they put into the 2019 season. The Greenback Christmas Parade was held on Dec. 7 where many Greenback students participated. These students participated by either being in the parade or helping put together gift bags for the younger children. There were horses, floats, tractors, cars, fire trucks, lots of people and lots of treats. After the parade, the Greenback Historical Society presented a historical marker for small-town Greenback. This marker is located near the Greenback Depot. First semester finals will be Dec. 18 and 19 and make-up exams will be Dec. 20. Christmas Break will begin Dec. 20 with one half day of school and will resume Jan. 6.
Judy Hawkins and the 2020 senior class has set a goal to plant over 1,000 trees all around the Greenback School campus. We will begin planting the variety of trees in January.
