Making Meaning of Thanksgiving at GEMS

Thanksgiving is a time for reflection, appreciation, and a time to gather with families and friends to be grateful for everything we have. It is a time for laughter and enjoying one another’s company- a time to acknowledge and be mindful of the lives we live.

Thanksgiving Contest - What Are You Thankful For?

To help students understand the importance of this holiday many activities were incorporated into the students’ daily routine at Georgia Elementary School. Many parents joined their children to help celebrate this festive event in school. Diverse activities occurred throughout the week and children were exposed to a variety of learning opportunities for a deeper understanding and meaning of Thanksgiving.

The following is a snapshot of those events:
