Ms. Marez has planned and implemented the annual Project RISE Harvest Dinner for several years, an evening of arts and literacy activities, parent-child activities, Thanksgiving dinner, giveaways and entertainment. This past fall marked the 10th annual Harvest Dinner and was held for the first time at Kenmore-Garfield High School. The FCCLA students helped prepare much of the food, did the set-up and cleaned up afterward. Eleven turkeys were donated by the Kenmore-Garfield staff and teachers. Glenda Keaton, another teacher, and her students prepared a sweet potato dish for the event.
