Kindergarten students at F.K.Sweet Magnet School invited their families to school for a Thanksgiving breakfast. The students sang songs, brought in food to share, and dressed up like Pilgrims and Native Americans. Charlotte Sellers from Morgan Haupt’s class was joined by her parents, grandparents and sisters for the special event.
Lakewood Park Elementary Principal Dianne Young had the honor to carve the first turkey for the students’ lunch while E’mon Thomas-Yasmin got to taste the first piece. Besides turkey the students enjoyed dressing, mash potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, salad and much more. Mrs. Andrea Pierson, cafeteria manager, asked questions to students about the first Thanksgiving dinner such as these and more:
- What types of food was served at the first Thanksgiving dinner?
- How many Pilgrims and Indians were at the dinner?
- What kind of animals did the Indians hunt to contribute to the meal?
- How many days did the first Thanksgiving last?
Thanks to Mrs. Simone Catrambone and Mrs. Andrea Pierson for the beautiful Thanksgiving decorations.
Thanks to our wonderful cafeteria staff for the delicious food they prepare every day for our students and staff. We are very thankful for them and all they do.
Lakewood Park Elementary would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving Holiday and drive safely.
Morningside Elementary celebrated Thanksgiving by giving to others. Students brought in food and decorated boxes to send home to our wonderful Grace Packs families. Our Kindergarten also celebrated with their annual POW WOW. They dressed up in costumes they made and parents brought in an abundance of “authentic” Thanksgiving food for the students to sample.
Maria Gerardi was the winner of this year’s PTO Turkey Feathers contest! Students bought turkey feathers for their favorite teacher and the teacher with the most feathers was honored to wear our turkey costume. Mrs. Gerardi had 124 feathers bought in her name. She is seen here with Miss Jean offering her some stuffing.
The Kindergarten students at White City Elementary School read books and learned about Native American Indians while studying a unit on People and Events of Now and Long Ago. The students were able to make their own vest and head dress decorating them with Native American symbols to wear to our Thanksgiving meal in the cafeteria.
