Students at St. Joseph School in Penfield were in the holiday spirit this week as they worked on several Thanksgiving projects. On Monday preschool students took part in a Thanksgiving story time and craft session; kindergartners dressed as pilgrims and Native Americans for a special feast; and second-graders made 16 pies to be donated to Open Door Mission. On Tuesday prekindergarten students dressed as Native Americans and heard Thanksgiving stories, and fifth-graders collected and organized food items for Thanksgiving baskets that were given to needy families. The Catholic Courier spoke to some of the kindergartners and second-graders about what they were most thankful for.
