Huge thank you to Mike Kennedy, Bob Brooks, and Geoff Pawlikowski for upgrading Hackett's auditorium audio system today. We also want to thank Michael Grosse for generously donating new speakers and an amplifier. A huge thank you has to go to all the families that have attended Friends of Hackett fundraising events and to the local businesses that have hosted us. Your generosity helped pay for this much needed improvement. Our talented students' upcoming performances should be a much different experience. Stay tuned, there are more improvements in the works!

This Tuesday the Hackett Student Advisory Council put on their 1st annual Thanksgiving Dinner for Hackett families! It took an amazing community effort to feed 384 people. Many thanks to The Block Church for organizing the decor and amassing an army of volunteers, to SugarHouse Casino for donating 25 turkeys, to chef and parent Tim Bennett for cooking the turkeys, to all the families that donated food for sides, to Front Street Cafe Philadelphia for cooking the sides, to Miss Katie for organizing all of the utensils and plates, to all the teachers who brought delicious desserts, to Portside Arts Center for setting up a craft, and to Avenues of Change for providing support. We are so thankful to be part of such a warm, committed, and engaged community. Hope you all enjoy your thanksgiving break.
