Each year Seton’s first grade and kindergarten classes work together and plan a Thanksgiving feast following their studies of the first Thanksgiving.  Traditionally, the first-graders were Native Americans and the kindergarteners were pilgrims. They shared a meal. 

This year, they invited the whole school to join them! So the entire K-6 student body helped prepare homemade stew, homemade applesauce, homemade butter and homemade cornbread. They joined to thank God for the food and for the first Thanksgiving that took place so many years ago.

Following a blessing, some students served the meal, some students passed out cornbread, and all the students shook baby-food jars full of cream in hopes of turning it into butter before cornbread got to their table.
