Chapel offerings for the month of November will be canned goods for the St James Food Pantry.  Their biggest needs are canned vegetables, canned soup (especially tomato and chicken noodle!), and toilet paper.  They also appreciate things like peanut butter, cereal, and crackers.  We will be setting a goal as a class this week on how many cans we would like to collect.  There is usually big competition between the classes on how many items are brought in!  Currently the kindergartners have collected 113 cans!  We are just 2 cans shy of our first goal!

A special Turkey project was send home last week.  It's fun to see our decorated turkeys hiding in the hallway!  You may still send your turkey in any time this week.

We do not have a full Thanksgiving Party in kindergarten, but we will be having a special Thanksgiving Snack on Wednesday.  We will continue learning about the Pilgrims, their Indian friends and the first Thanksgiving this week.  As part of our activities for the week, the kindergartners will make both Indian and Pilgrim hats and then they will get to decide which they would like to be for our Thanksgiving snack.
