St. Stephen Elementary School students enjoyed Thanksgiving during school because the days were full of fun, learning and new traditions. Beginning Nov. 26 the first and second grade teachers held their first annual Colonial Feast. All first and second graders were treated to a large dinner with all the colonial trimmings.
On Nov. 23, St. Stephen Elementary held its second annual, school-wide Colonial Day. Students in grades 1-5 become wax figures of historic colonialists.
All students are encouraged to dress in colonial attire as they walked around the school listening to a short biography of each wax figure. In addition to the celebration, the first grade class received a private lesson from Ms. Lenora Kennedy on how to create a rag rug using a nail, just like the colonists did.
The St. Stephen Community History Room and Café will be open on Thursday, Dec. 12 from 11 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. The menu will consist of baked turkey, cornbread dressing with gravy, candied yams, garden peas and cranberry sauce.
The cost of lunch is $7. Dine in or take out plates are available.
The community café is located on Bay Street, inside of the St. Stephen History Room, and managed by local volunteers. Support from the public is greatly appreciated.
If more information is needed or you would like to place an order in advance, call 670-6213.
