Every year the school helps local families in need before Thanksgiving.
This is Principal Holli Armstrong's eighth year at the Oakdale Elementary School in Dedham. This is also the eighth year that Ms. Armstrong has led her students on a successful Thanksgiving Food Drive. Each year, with the help of school nurse, Sue Healy, local families in need are lined up before Thanksgiving. During the month of November, with her Fifth Grade student council by her side, meetings are held, flyers are made and sent home, and food is collected in each classroom. As the holiday approaches, all of the donated items are brought together, and each year, local supermarkets Roche Bros. and Shaw's, have generously donated Thanksgiving turkeys and gift cards. We stopped by the school recently after lunch break, to find the …
A less-than-traditional list from our very own Tireless Mom.
Before we head over the river and through the woods to the most delicious feast of the year, I thought I’d take time to call out just a few of the things I’m thankful for. While obviously I’m grateful for my health and overall happiness, this year I’d like to give some of those “unsung heroes” their due as well. Everything below makes my life just a little happier and a lot easier, and a working mom like myself NEVER takes those for granted. 1. Georgia’s laugh – I don’t know how she does it, but it starts from way down in her chest and by the time it reaches your ears you can’t help but start giggling too. My favorite version is the one where her brothers make her crack up and she doesn’t know I’m listening; it’s rare, but it’s amazing. …

Early turnovers doom Marauders on Thanksgiving.
Dedham turned over the ball on the second play of the game, setting the tone for a 48-18 routing at the hands of archrival Norwood today in the annual Thanksgiving matchup. The Mustangs would find the endzone three times in the opening quarter alone, and would lead at the half 34-6. The Marauders did not fare much better in the third where they had only a single first down. Dedham scored twice in the fourth, but Norwood ultimately proved to be too much, running up the score before the senior Mustangs hoisted the Wall-Toti Trophy above the heads of their teammates. Check Dedham Patch later for a full game story and more pictures.
