This week's CPIE sponsor for Saturday School meals at Newbern was Godfrey Funeral Home. They provided hotdogs, chips, and a drink and delivered them already packaged for the students. Even on a rainy Saturday, students showed up ready to learn, as their teachers have worked hard preparing lessons and activities in the areas of reading, writing, and mathematics. We are proud of the gains the students have already made since attending. Thank you Godfrey Funeral Home for your support to Newbern Middle School! We appreciate you all! #newbernstrong
