MINTURN – A community came together over dinner Dec. 15 to make a statement – we support our school.

In a gymnasium usually reserved for sporting events, Minturn Middle School parents and students had a restaurant-style dinner for about 150 people to raise money for the school’s expeditionary learning program. Sixth graders performed an interpretation of “Harlem,” a poem by Walter Dean Myers. The class is studying the Harlem Renaissance literary movement.

The dinner, which raised $7,300 was made possible by donations from Mo’s BBQ and Minturn’s senior’ center, and the work of parents.
