The last couple of days before Thanksgiving break Mrs. Hooley's class spent each afternoon learning about and doing different activities associated with Native Americans and Pilgrims.  They made teepees, indian corn, clay pottery, pilgrim hats, and bracelets to help them understand the reasons we celebrate Thanksgiving.

At a recent assembly, students learned more about empathy as they took a virtual trip to Africa and walked in the shoes of another child named Thomas. They were surprised and excited to learn that they can help a child their age receive a simple, lifesaving gift…clean water.

Mrs. Hales' Kindergarten class enjoyed a fun Thanksgiving Feast today.  They have been learning about manners, the proper way to set a table, and had a special lesson from Mrs. Tew about table manners.  Before enjoying their feast they each shared some things they were thankful for.  All our parents helpers were very impressed with the excellent manners the class used during their meal today.  Happy Thanksgiving!

6th grade students are thankful to live in the United States!  6th grade students split  their desks up to be equivalent to land mass and populations around the world. We then passed out cookies and money which were equivalent to the available food and gross product around the world. We then read stories about how children around the world live. It is an amazing day!
