Thank you to our teachers, the students and families who have been showing the true meaning of giving this Thanksgiving season. Throughout the district there have been a bounty of relief drives, including food collected for those in need, and written expressions of gratitude. First graders prepared for Thursday’s feast, baking corn and pumpkin breads (and stirring stone soup), and played games of the young Pilgrims and Native Americans. Kindergarteners shared the things they are grateful for – and yes, kids say the sweetest things. "All I really need," they sang, "is a song in my heart, food in my belly and love in my family."
Whether learning about the Mayflower and pilgrims, turkeys and traditional foods, Native American contributions, or the concept of family, our students were actively involved in understanding what this holiday means. #HappyThanksgiving.
