Students standing in front of our thankful heart

     Thanksgiving tradition goes much deeper than just food for Joy James Elementary. The power of a grateful heart changes who we are inside and enables us to choose to be grateful regardless of our circumstances. Students prepared for the Thanksgiving feast with family by looking for things to be grateful throughout the day. Joy James displayed a “Giving thanks with a grateful heart” wall, that displayed notes to students from students that showed how grateful they were to have each other in their lives. A Joy James’s thankful wall for staff was also on display. The walls demonstrated positive relationships in our school community. Parents enjoyed time in the classroom with their students where they participated in a Thanksgiving writing activity or student presentations. The event ended with a traditional delicious Thanksgiving meal. The Thanksgiving Feast was a great success at Joy James Elementary.
