This Week

Our week consisted of being thankful and learning about the first Thanksgiving. We also fit in a STEM project, where our mission was to construct a table that held Thanksgiving foods. Congratulations to Claire and Amara for being the first group to achieve this. Mason and Morgan came in a close second. I'm thankful for a respectful, hardworking group of students this year! Happy Thanksgiving!
