NEIS Thanksgiving Day

At Nanjing Echo-Forte International School (NEIS), Teachers try to make holiday lessons informative and fun. NEIS begun their celebration with a special whole school assembly where videos, which told the story of Thanksgiving, were presented. These videos were created by some High School students.  The students each said what they were thankful for and reflected on those in need and how we can share our blessings. The elementary students prepared food with their teachers in their classrooms to share in the special lunch. The school cafeteria staff prepared turkey, sweet potatoes, mixed salad, vegetables and special Halal dishes. Secondary teachers also brought food to share and many parents sent traditional food as well making this a truly memorable Thanksgiving feast where all leaned about this wonderful North American Holiday.
