Stepping Stones Celebrates Thanksgiving

November 26th, 2020

While this year’s Stepping Stones Thanksgiving celebration looked a bit different, fun was still had by all.  To mark the holiday, the students spent the week leading up to Thanksgiving learning about pilgrims and Native Americans, turkeys, and more.  On Wednesday, November 25 the students even had a modified Thanksgiving feast with their respective class including rotisserie chicken and traditional sides!
