A pizza dinner was served by school improvement council members, Midenna Anderson, LaDonna Smith, Libby Gregory and Greta Hough. The pizza was donated by Papa John’s of Lancaster and drinks were donated by Pepsi.
During dinner, a group of students in the third, fourth and fifth grades from the 21st Century Community Learning Center performed several selections on steel drums.
After dinner, the students and their siblings went to the gym to listen to the story “Jake and The Migration of TheMonarch,” by Crystal O’Connor.
Afterward, Andrea Hudson, 21st Century teacher, and the school improvement council members helped students make a butterfly while parents attended the workshop.

“It was an enjoyable evening of food, fun and fellowship for the entire family.,” said Michelle Crosby, McDonald Green School principal. “The parents said the workshop was wonderful – very informative and beneficial.”
