Olustee-Eldorado Thanksgiving Break
By Harley Hernandez
Everyone has gone on break for Thanksgiving. My Thanksgiving break was alright. We had family over and went to go see more family at my grandma’s.
I saw people on social media that they were having a good time. We had a game on Tuesday, and since we haven’t practiced all week we lost.
Coming back after the week off everything was not fresh on our minds so our teachers came and gave us work. In most of the classes we didn’t even do anything.

Olustee-Eldorado Christmas shop
By Harley Hernandez

The Christmas shop is open from the time the bell rings to come in and it closes at 3 p.m. The stuff that is in there is for all the students and teachers if needed.
It was provided by some of the students and teachers, and community whom like to provide things for other people. Some of the items included in the Christmas store are clothes, shoes, jewelry, handbags, toys and a lot of other items.
Students are seen going in there getting things for their family members. But, the rules are a student can only get 3 items a day. Three items can matter in someone’s life whether you know it or not. The amount of joy that comes off their faces is so amazing.
I would like to say a big thank you to Mrs. Hayes, who put her hard work into making it happen. Also, the students, that are in there helping every chance that they get.
Finally a big Thank You to the community of Olustee and Eldorado for donating things that you no longer use but someone else may find a good use for.

Olustee-Eldorado Elementary Christmas Program
By Harley Hernandez

The elementary Christmas program is what we have every year. First through fourth graders are going to be in it. They are going to sing a lot of songs and do a play.
I think the program is a neat little program that gets the high school students out of class to watch the matinee performance. It also gives the elementary practice for the real performance opening night at 7.
The elementary need to be here at 6:45 and need to be dress as elf’s for this amazing play. If you want to be a part of this wonderful event, please come through the auditorium doors and not the side doors, Thank You.
We hope to see you all there. HAVE A BLESSED AND SAFE CHRISTMAS BREAK!!!
