This week, our students reflected on the holiday season through a variety of classroom activities and projects. We asked some of our students at Lunalilo Elementary what they are grateful for, and here’s what they had to say:
“I am thankful for my teacher who helps me learn by teaching us math like addition and subtraction.” – Janis, grade 1
“I am thankful for life and everything I have. I am thankful for every time I’m in school. It helps me learn and learn about life so I can go to college.” – Emma, grade 3
“I am thankful I have friends and for being loved. I am thankful for my mother. I am thankful for my teacher who helps me learn how to solve problems.” – Zyerel, grade 3
“I am thankful for all my friends and my family. At school, I am happy to be with friends learning science and other subjects. I am happy to be challenged at school and thankful for my teacher, who is always nice.” – Isaiah, grade 4
“I am thankful for being alive, my mom and dad for getting the house and food so I can live. I am thankful to be in Lunalilo because it’s the best school!” – Joshua, grade 5
I would like to wish everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving! If you’re still searching for a delicious treat to bring to your holiday gathering, check out our Harvest of the Month dish: Okinawan Sweet Potato Pie.
