Throughout the month of November, students of the district studied aspects of the first Thanksgiving.  

At Forest Avenue Elementary School, former kindergarten teacher Sue Dieterle returned to delight students in Carolyn Bogart's, Alyson Russo's and Kristen Wilken's kindergarten classes with an authentic Native American presentation that included Native American dancing.

At Tooker Avenue Elementary School, Louise Pino’s kindergartners compared and contrasted Native Americans and Pilgrims. They discovered the Pilgrims were not unlike themselves in that they were thankful for their families, food and homes.
