Dr. Tokumoto was invited to have lunch with the Levy Family, the owners of NCH. They presented her with a check for $25,000! In response, students wrote thank you notes to the Levy Family for their generous donation to the staff and students of JRG.

All students who were present on the Monday after Thanksgiving were entered into a drawing. Brandon, from Mrs. Cortes’ class, had his name drawn in the raffle. His parents were called and his name was announced just before dismissal. The winning family received a $100 grocery store gift card. Brandon, it was discovered, has perfect attendance and no tardies for the school year. Here he is pictured holding the gift card alongside his younger sibling and mom.
