As we approach the Thanksgiving Holiday we have a lot to be thankful for. Over one-third of our students had perfect attendance and many students were on the Honor Roll. We need to THANK our parents and teachers for supporting and encouraging us to come to school every day and to do our best. So, let’s celebrate with our families and school community and Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!!

A Thanksgiving Poem
‘Twas the night of Thanksgiving
But I just couldn’t sleep
I tried counting backwards,
I tried counting sheep.
The leftovers beckoned-the dark meat and white,
But I fought the temptation with all of my might.
Tossing and turning with anticipation,
The thought of a snack became infatuation.
So, I raced to the kitchen, flung open the door
And gazed at the fridge, full of groceries galore,
I gobbled up turkey and buttered potatoes,
Stuffing with gravy, green beans and tomatoes
I felt myself swelling so plump and so round,
Till all of a sudden, I rose off the ground.
I crashed through the ceiling, floating into the sky
With a mouthful of pudding and a handful of pie
But, I managed to yell as I soared past the trees.
Happy eating to all – pass the cranberries, please.
May your stuffing be tasty, may your turkey be plump,
May your potatoes and gravy have nary a lump
May your yams be delicious, may your pies take the prize,
May your Thanksgiving dinner stay off of your thighs.
