Students in Joanne Kotelly’s class collected food items and made cards for clients of the Zion Food Pantry in Plymouth. After decorating the delivery boxes with holiday themes and filling them with goodies, students sent them home with Allison, who will bring the boxes to the pantry with her family. Many thanks to Allison and her family for helping students help others through this Community Service Project.

The Renaissance era-garbed troupe of madrigal singers from Acton Boxborough High School was invited to perform once again for Cotting School students on Thursday by music teacher Elizabeth MacDonald (a former member of the troupe). Led by Acton Boxborough music teacher, Jennifer Moss, the high school students sang a few holiday-themed songs along with a few members of Cotting’s middle school chorus, performed a five minute version of the Wizard of Oz, and warmed hearts and spirits on a cold winter’s day.
