Plumas Charter School students in Indian Valley celebrate Thankful Day

According to tradition, Plumas Charter students of all ages focused on what they are thankful for during Thanksgiving week in Indian Valley.

The Greenville Learning Center (kindergarten–sixth grade on Pine Street in Greenville) held its Thankful Day during the evening of Nov. 21 at the Indian Valley Community Center. Students in grades K–6 participated in the performance portion of the evening. They offered songs, a skit about the history of Thanksgiving, and acrostic poetry (poems in which the first letters of the lines also spell words).

After the performance, GLC students, teachers, staff, families, and community members gathered for a potluck dinner.

“The 2019 Thankful Day event was a huge success,” said GLC Site Coordinator Andre Essue. “We enjoyed sharing this special night with our students, parents/guardians, and community members.”

Teacher Jennifer Van Acker agreed: “It was a great event. I’m so proud to be a part of this school.”
