Coatesville Area School District of­fi­cials gave back to stu­dents and their fam­i­lies in need.

COATESVILLE >> Mem­bers from the Coatesville Area School District gave back to stu­dents and their fam­i­lies in need as a way of ex­press­ing their thank­ful­ness for the stu­dents.

Coatesville school board mem­bers, ad­min­is­tra­tors and staff spent a por­tion of the day be­fore Thanks­giv­ing vis­it­ing school fam­i­lies as part of a new “Thanks-vis­it­ing” tra­di­tion. For the sec­ond year, they gath­ered to do­nate and de­liver Thanks­giv­ing Day feasts for Coatesville Area School District fam­i­lies in need.

Coatesville Su­per­in­ten­dent Cathy Taschner said the vis­its last week were about “tak­ing the time to show sup­port and ap­pre­ci­a­tion for our stu­dents and fam­i­lies.”

They as­sisted a to­tal of 20 fam­i­lies who re­side in Coatesville, Caln and Mo­dena. They trav­eled in teams of two to

three peo­ple with a to­tal of 10 teams that de­liv­ered full tur­key din­ners each with pie, rolls, veg­eta­bles, stuff­ing and pota­toes.

Taschner noted the vis­its were about more than putting tur­key din­ners on the ta­bles.

“They were about turn­ing our words of thanks into tan­gi­ble ac­tions,” Taschner said. “Our ad­min­is­tra­tive team is thank­ful for our stu­dents, fam­i­lies and the op­por­tu­nity to learn, lead and serve to­gether.”

The group is plan­ning the next ser­vice op­por­tu­nity for the hol­i­days in De­cem­ber.
