We will celebrate Thanksgiving at the CAB on Thursday November 28rd at lunch time in the preschool and elementary levels.
On this occasion the children will have a special meal at the canteen. Elementary Teachers will enjoy this meal with their students. The PTA will make pies and cakes for the occasion and help serve them to all students. The celebration of Thanksgiving will be discussed in Class.
Thanksgiving is a national autumn holiday celebrated in October and November in Canada and the United States. Thanksgiving Day can be traced back to the 1621 celebration at the Plymouth Plantation in Massachusetts, when the refugees from England known as the Pilgrims invited the local Native Americans to a harvest feast after a particularly successful growing season. Although Thanksgiving has historical roots in religious and cultural traditions, it is celebrated in our school as an opportunity to learn with children the important values of thankfulness, gratitude, respect and sharing.
