A Thanksgiving tradition continued at South Grove Elementary School as students and staff said thanks to local firefighters, police officers, veterans and members of the American Legion with a celebration and feast in the school kindergarten/grade 1 annex. Dressed in various costumes, students entertained their heroes by performing the “Turkey Twist” under the direction of music teacher Dr. Kathleen Conklin.  The students also performed using American Sign Language. Christina Mancuso, the school’s developmental reading specialist and lead teacher, coordinated the event. Board of Education members and central administrators were also invited to show their gratitude to these community heroes. The school also held a Thanksgiving feast in the main building for children in grades 2-5.
