The Pre-K students of Mrs. Ellis and Mrs. Amy’s Pre-K classroom at South Man Elementary.

The Pre-K students of Mrs. Ellis and Mrs. Amy’s Pre-K classroom at South Man Elementary celebrated Thanksgiving last week by making Native American headbands along with Pilgrim hats. The students also enjoyed listening to several Thanksgiving stories.

The students were asked, “Where does your mommy buy her turkey?”, “How much does it cost?” and “How does your mommy fix a turkey for Thanksgiving dinner?”. The following are their replies. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did. Mrs. Angel Harris is the principal at South Man Elementary.
