The 5th & 6th Grade Student Council at Eastwood Middle School designed fall floral arrangements for the residents of Portage Valley for Thanksgiving. Each student council member created and designed their own unique centerpiece and then helped deliver the arrangements to the residents on Monday, November 23rd. The arrangements were placed in the dining halls for all to enjoy.  In addition, the 5th & 6th grade student body made over 200 Thanksgiving cards for the residents too. Some of the cards were hand delivered while others were placed in the dining halls or in the residents' mailboxes.
