"Breakout" Takes Over Hereford Elementary!

Breakout games teach critical thinking, teamwork and complex problem solving skills.
You may have heard about this activity happening in your child's class.  FLITE teacher Mr. Guellich put together the information at this link to help us learn more about this project!  

The Open Link Food Drive Begins

A Message From The Hereford Quilters
Last year Mrs. R. and the Hereford Quilters set a steep goal to educate, feed and provide two uniforms to three impoverished girls in the sub-Saharan area of Africa through an organization called Reverse the Course.  To reach this goal, we need to earn $3,900.00!!

Thanks to the Hereford Bazaar, we are about half-way to supporting one girl!  We are kindly asking if you can help us with our goal.  A $5.00 donation will get you a beautiful hand-crafted ornament and feed a girl three meals a day for two weeks so she can focus on her education.  You also get to add a square to our next Quilters for Education quilt that we will be piecing together.

These ornaments make a great gift - for family, friends, co-workers, etc.  A gift card explaining the donation is included.  Please contact Christine Schmoyer at if you are interested in making a contribution and a difference in a young girl's life.
A special "thank you" is extended to our adult volunteers for their weekly help and support - Laura Wismer, Chris Eden, Lori Rothenberger and Sue Harter.
