Can you believe Thanksgiving is a week away? And you know what that means, Native American day, with Pilgrim Day right around the corner! Today, Native American day coincided with Grandma's birthday, so it was an all around fun day. All week long the students have been preparing their Native American items, from covering oatmeal (or in our case the biggest can of peanuts from BJs that you've ever seen!) containers and making them into drums. Complete with beaded bells and headdresses, there was quite the tribe of Native Americans at school!
