Kindergarten

October 14th-18th

With Thanksgiving coming up, the students had many wonderful discussions about the gifts and talents God has blessed them with and all the things they are thankful for. Kindergarten also explored their sense of taste by trying three different types of apples and choosing which one was their favourite. The children noticed that not everyone liked the same apple because God made everybody different!
