November is the month to give thanks for the many blessings we have. One of those blessings is our country, the United States of America. This week the students have learned to vote. Using our Voting Booth the children cast their ballot for a Crazy Hat Day or Pajama Day.
Pajama Day won and we will all wear our pajamas for our next HT Reading Day on December 8. We will also honor our veterans this week with prayers, songs and a presentation by Ron McGovern on the U.S. Armed Forces on Veterans Day. All week the children have been singing patriotic songs here and I hope singing them at home.
We have conveyed to the children our gratitude for the many things that make our lives special. We are working to teach them about our history and American heritage.
We will give thanks as a school community on Wednesday, November 23 and invite you to join us. As we gather our families together for Thanksgiving let us all give thanks for our faith, our country, our families, and the wonderful Holy Trinity school community.
May you and your families enjoy a Happy Thanksgiving!
