Aggie Weekly-Thanksgiving Edition




Good Afternoon Students, Parents, and Community Members:

We had a short week, but we made the most of it as Student Council helped donate food to our local communities. We appreciate everyone’s generosity as we can help make the holidays a little better for some families. We would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!



Student Council Food Drive: We always appreciate the opportunity to give back to our community. Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours! #BAPRIDE

We were able to collect a total of 191 cans of cranberry sauce, 190 boxes in total of pasta and stuffing, 74 cans in total of fruit and applesauce, 133 boxes of bread mix, 55 jars of gravy, 105 boxes of mashed potatoes, 101 cans of veggies, and crusts and filling for 10 total pies!

We are so humbled to be able to give back to our community. Thank you to everyone for all your hard work. We appreciate it so much, and we know that the families we are helping do, too!

Anti-Bullying Presentation: On Wednesday, Dr. DiGioia presented to students and staff on Anti-Bullying and being kind. #BAPride



















ELA: In Mrs. Coderre’s ELA class, students wrote a poem in response to the Anti-Bullying presentation today. The theme of the poem was about Hester Prynne being one of the first victims of bullying in Puritanical society. See the below below.

Pearls before Swine

By: Mrs. Coderre’s Honors English Class of 2021



You may have heard about Hester Prynne

And the Puritanical society she lived in

The letter A she wore for her greatest sin

But what do you know of her next of kin?



If you take a careful look

Into this very famous book

You’ll find the story of a little girl

A misunderstood child by the name of Pearl



She came into the world in an unusual way

A child of the devil some might say

Sticks and leaves were her sole playmate

And loneliness was to be her only fate



Townspeople didn’t seem to like her

When she walked around, she caused quite a stir

Evil imp was her designated name

Sadly, she was left out of childhood games




Her anger spiraled and it grew

Until one day a rock she threw

Angry, alone, friendless and forlorn

Is it any wonder her heart was torn?



Pearl is a lesson for us to not forget

Be kind to all of those we have met

Attention Families: Attleboro Enterprises works with our students here at Bristol Aggie and they also partner with Tommy Hilfiger. "For one in five Americans living with a disability, something as simple as getting dressed each day can be a challenge. Inspired by their experiences and Tommy's own history having children with autism, their team made a commitment to rethink the design process to uncover solutions that really work. Tommy Adaptive puts a new twist on tradition, delivering modern style with innovative modifications that empower people and make dressing easier."

All are invited to attend this amazing event celebrating inclusion in fashion! Speak with staff, see some of the new items, and get coupons. Refreshments and snacks will be served. Hope to see you there!












We would like to thank Munroe Farm for donating the wood for the Bonfire!
