Thanksgiving Extravaganza at MS 131!

Today we celebrated Thanksgiving together with food, fun and some meaningful reflection.  We had a ton of food!  Students and families contributed so many tasty treats, parents baked whole turkeys and some teachers contributed delicious cakes.  We had a lot of fun as well.  The 5 on 5 basketball tournaments crowned a winning class in each grade, and after tiring them out the teachers got to play them.  The “Turkey Trot” on the track measured how many times representatives from classes could circle the track in 15 minutes (603 was incredible by going around 46 times total!!)  And of course, students took time to reflect on what they are thankful for and contribute a “leaf” to our Thanksgiving trees.  Many students were thankful for their families and teachers, and we are thankful for such thoughtful and kind students with whom we work.  Check out some of the many pictures below to get a sense for the day.
