Giving Thanks...
The Yosemite Room kicked off the Thanksgiving season with a beautiful Harvest Feast this morning. Among the many features was the apple sauce they made as a class yesterday, assisted by Kinder mom, Hind.

The Upper Elementary will have their Thanksgiving Feast on Monday. They have completed their lesson on table  etiquette and learned how to set a table. Each class has made table decorations, and are asked to dress up for Monday's event. 

The Lower Elementary students have been working on a Writing Thankfulness Project (see below). 

Thanks so much to all the families who will be contributing to these wonderful celebrations! 
Lending a Hand...
A big thank you to Angelica & David Kashulines for leading the beautification project in our multipurpose room!
