Happy Thanksgiving from SLAS!
All around the world spanning different cultures and societies, the tradition of giving thanks for a bountiful harvest is celebrated. At SLAS, we give thanks to our Community and enjoy many of the activities celebrated at this time of year.
Our Wildcats enjoyed this week! There were many Thanksgiving projects coming up to Thanksgiving Day where they learned about the Mayflower and the stories and history of Thanksgiving. Students practiced giving thanks by writing out what they were thankful for as well as what they appreciated in their lives.
” Another year of invoking the Thanksgiving spirit and enjoying a great American tradition.”
– Ms. Carissa
Life is filled with struggles and challenges and so November is a great month to set aside some time to consider how much we are blessed. I can remember saying what I was thankful for around the dinner table as I grew up, and now I am happy to have continued this tradition with my own family as well.
Each November, we start the month by creating a featherless turkey. Then each night, we say what we are thankful for, write it on colorful feathers, and hang them on the bird. As the turkey grows and becomes more colorful each night, we realize just how much in our lives we have to be thankful for.
