Each year, Monteagle Elementary School students write notes to the newspaper to express what they are thankful for on Thanksgiving. A monetary donation is given to students for the top letters from a generous supporter of MES for this cause. This year, third grade students Avery Byers and Dharvi Patel received a check for $25 for their letters. The fourth grade students were Braden Meeks and Caitlin Ballard and they also received a check for $25. Tayler Meeks was recognized by our anonymous philanthropist for her academic efforts and her continued positive attitude and behavior at school. She received a $25 check.
