Second grade students of Shulamith School for Girls welcomed their parents and grandparents to the Cedarhurst school’s annual Thanksgiving fair.
The school lunchroom was elaborately decorated in fall colors, creating a festive atmosphere for the event. The girls sang songs and presented poems. There were also interactive booths for the children and their guests to “feast” upon: making cupcake turkeys, placemats, and bookmarks were some of the activities that delighted everyone.
Thanks to the creativity and commitment of their teacher, Sharon Katz, the students enjoyed an enriching experience which taught them all about the Pilgrims and why they came to the “New World.” They learned how very different life was at that time than it is today, and came to understand the hardships the Pilgrims endured.
As the students and parents thanked their teachers, it was evident that they gained an appreciation of hakarat hatov.
