#41 Terrebonne
October 22, 2012 By Mary Daly
Terrebonne Community School lives by its name – Community. A wonderful renovated school that invites nature with its multiple birdfeeders, bioswales, and native plantings. Inside the staff was supportive, friendly, caring and proud of their student body. It was such a positive environment and that made our jobs easier. On Friday the Tooth Taxi team was invited to the gym where students gather before class. We were treated to a heartfelt thank you for all the work that had been done. The school leadership team presented us with a wonderful fruit basket and book of thank you notes. This is a caring community.

From the kid gallery:

"I found a root that helps me brush while hunting, it tastes like licorice."

"I'm growing a grown-up tooth."

"I lost two but I'm not going to lose anymore."
(a 2nd grader)

"My sister! She had a tooth that grew back 3 times!!!"

A patient when we gave her sunglasses to put on. "These glasses work really well, they make me see better. I used to wear glasses 'cuz this eye blinked before this one. My mom wears glasses because she's a parent."
