Thanksgiving was always fun in elementary school! Ah, memories of making construction paper pilgrim hats, learning about the Mayflower and eating stringy turkey and mashed potatoes that came from an ice cream scoop and covered with yellow slime gravy. Mmm mmm mmm, those were good times!!!

Here's a newspaper clipping of the lunch room in my elementary school. I was in the first grade and my class is sitting in the back behind the second and third grades. We're all decked out in our Thanksgiving paper costumes.

I'm glad my first grade teacher Miss Fischer gave me a star for my efforts on this Thanksgiving writing assignment.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Fun! Too bad the quality wasn't better so we could make out the little Mayor in the back row.
