Mrs. Karen Pollari’s second grade class

Isabella Greco- Thanksgiving means giving thanks to one another because some people do not get to celebrate. Some people do not have enough money

Zach Green- Thanksgiving means playing games and going to Grandma’s house to see my cousin. We eat ham, cheese sandwiches, and turkey.

Toby Kleinke- Thanksgiving means having a feast with my family. We get all sorts of things like: corn, mashed potatoes, turkey, and all sorts of things.

Marrett Haralson- Thanksgiving means to give thanks, and have family time. We have a big meal together.

Aubrey Dockweiler- Thanksgiving is a big meal for families. I love Thanksgiving. I spend time with my family. It’s so much fun. We eat big meals until we are so full.

Tyler Dasinger- Thanksgiving means having a big feast and spending time with my brother, my mom, and my dad.

Zoey Winksy- Thanksgiving means being nice. Actually everyone should be nice!

Kamden Johnson- Thanksgiving is the best time of year, because I get to eat all different kinds of foods. I get to see my cousin and play football at my Grandma’s and Grandpa’s house too.

Oaklee Lonski- Thanksgiving means that we can shoot turkeys at my house and bring them home to eat. I celebrate with our family, and bake pies with my mom’s cousin Nettey. This year I am going to my Grandma’s and Grandpa’s house.

Maysen Petersen- Thanksgiving means I get to spend time with my family, especially my mom. That’s one of the only weekdays she has off of work. Thanksgiving also means you eat with your family and friends.

Jaden Reuter- Thanksgiving means you get to go to a store and buy food for the food bank. I get to eat my favorite food, which would be stuffing. I get to do Thanksgiving with my mom, dad, sister, and brother. This is why Thanksgiving is special to me.

Nolan Luinstra- Thanksgiving means so much to me, because Thanksgiving means spending time with my family.

Grant Keller- Thanksgiving means family, love, care, and happiness.

Odin Murphy- Love, Family. Time off from school. Most of the food at Thanksgiving dinner.

Thanksgiving is…

Praying to God for the food,

Seeing my family and friends,

Watching Thanksgiving movies,
