New School Montessori elementary students gave their Thanksgiving presentations this morning, teaching us about the history of succotash and how the Native Americans shared their food and planting practices with Pilgrims. We learned how different countries celebrate their harvest season and discovered what our students are thankful for. Some expressed gratitude in song, while others recited a poem with students popping up within the crowd (standing on chairs) as they delivered their lines. The whole program was very impactful and ended with Chef Audrey and her assistant, Jonathan, offering slices of homemade pumpkin pie to the audience.
We are grateful for the generosity of our families and staff who also contributed to our food and supply drive for CAIN in Northside.
