Beginning in November, we talk about the history of Thanksgiving and the relationship between the Pilgrims and Native Americans. We include the thankfulness of this year and of parents (and many other areas of our lives). And we celebrate a Thanksgiving feast as the pilgrims and Native Americans did in the past.
Children are creating Native American and Pilgrim hats during project time to get ready for the Thanksgiving feast.
Everyone is making their own mats for the feast, too.
On the day of the Thanksgiving feast, the children’s family came, as well as the alumni!

The feast begins!
All friends and family of Dayspring gather for a wonderful lunch.
We have turkey, corn, yams, cornbread on this table, like the very first Thanksgiving.
Filling up the whole room with love and care
Dayspring children sit on a long white table to enjoy their food.

The alumni, who have already experienced the Thanksgiving feast with Dayspring before, are now here to enjoy it as visitors.
A group of alumni sit together here and enjoy their food.
