Dear Parents,
Last year, we shared this gratitude video with our families. We all know how powerful gratitude is and these next two weeks, we are connecting our gratitude with giving ending with the Thanksgiving Drive and ceremony on November 28. We encourage you to view it as you engage in conversations around giving thanks and the happiness that gratitude brings.

We hope that you can donate a new book and pick a title in spanish that your child enjoys. These books will be donated to the community of Zumbahua and we will work with them to support literacy and the joy of reading.

Here is the list of food. Thanksgiving: A time to Give
