NPS Gives Thanks, Builds Community

Happy Thanksgiving to our School Community!

The Natick Schools would like to wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving.  We share here just a few snapshots of the community building day we had here in the Natick Schools.  Every school has its traditions for celebrating community and togetherness on this half-day before Thanksgiving.  By way of example (not an inclusive list) the Wilson School, who typically rouses the largest single donation to the Natick Service Council food pantry each year beat its own record for food collection.  The high school rivaled them by collecting 5000 in food items.  The Johnson school raised over $1,000 for UNICEF.  These are just a few of the activities around the district designed to allow our students to reflect on all that they do have and work to give to others who may be in need.

But fun and festivities also abounded.  Included below are pictures of the Kindergarten performance at the Johnson school and the NHS pep rally (big Natick/Framingham football game is Thanksgiving Day!) as well as the breakfast cooked and served by WMS staff for the homeroom who brought in the most food items for the Healthy Harvest event.

We are so fortunate to live in a tight-knit community that values service

and tradition! Be sure to check out the photo of NHS Principal Brian Harrigan dancing the Whip/Nae-Nae and the Elite Dancer group as well as our NHS Bay State Champion Cheer leaders!

Finally, join me in cute overload as we applaud the Johnson Kindergartners for their performance of fall poems and songs. Principal Karen Ghilani introduces the performers.
