Our kindergarten classroom learned about how the Pilgrims and Native Americans celebrated the first Thanksgiving by playing the games they would have played and learning what life was like during that time and our first graders enjoyed a “Friends Thanksgiving” complete with popcorn, jelly beans, toast and of course lots of friends 🙂

Molly Emrich from the American Heart Association came to Conestoga and did a great presentation on steps we can take to keep our hearts healthy. She also provided information on the Kids Heart Challenge in December. As part of the presentation we had the opportunity to wear some stylish glasses:)
