Thanksgiving Feast is Coming Up!
Our Thanksgiving Feast will be on Monday, November 23RD this year. Our classrooms will enjoy Thanksgiving fun and activities in their classroom before enjoying their feasts at lunchtime. A Thanksgiving-themed school lunch of turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, and corn will be provided to those buying school lunch. You may purchase school lunch for your child at the front desk. Be sure to check your child's classroom sign-up sheet for extra treats to accompany the school lunch Thanksgiving meal.
Tasty Turkey Treats for Cooking Class
Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and today's cooking class was a gobbling-good time...we made sweet, delicious turkeys out of graham crackers, pretzels, vanilla wafers, and candies.
Ms. Melissa's Pre-K class also made Native American teepees out of ice cream cones, chocolate, and pretzels.
All of our classrooms have been busy learning about Thanksgiving for Pilgrims & Indians week here at Future Scholars and everyone is excited for our Thanksgiving Feast, which will be on Monday Nov. 24TH. Remember, you can sign up to bring something to your child's class party and you can also purchase them a Thanksgiving-themed school lunch that day. Just see us at the front desk for more information or to pay. Anyone already purchasing lunch that day will have a delicious Thanksgiving feast instead of the regular Monday menu.

The past two weeks' themes at Future Scholars have been "Apples of Plenty" and "Fall Harvest" so it was only fitting that our classrooms would celebrate with lots of apple-related crafts and activities!
After last week's Apple Picking trip to Johnson's Farm you might think that our students would be all "appled out", but they had a blast cooking apple sauce, making apple prints, and more!
