What We're Working On

November went by very quickly and I'm sure December will as well. Our themes for the month were: nutrition and Thanksgiving. We learned about the 5 food groups and the difference between healthy and unhealthy food choices. The first Thanksgiving (Pilgrims, Native Americans), and Thanksgiving foods were also things we discussed.


  • Spirit week was the first week of November.
  • On November 24th we had a Thanksgiving dinner/lunch with the whole elementary department.
