Elementary school students attending Lido, Lindell, East and West schools in Long Beach prepared for the Thanksgiving break with an array of activities to bring on the festivities of the season.
At Lido Elementary School the first annual Thanksgiving Parade took place around the basketball court for friends and families to cheer on students as they marched around with their balloon creations.
At Lindell and West Elementary Schools, students participated in their annual Turkey Trot events around the school and students made turkey hats and handprint cards with grateful sayings.
At East Elementary students enjoyed a special presentation from TePee Ted to recognize the history, culture, and contributions of Native People through “The Wilderness Traveling Museum.”
Additionally, a Thanksgiving food drive at Long Beach Middle School collected non-perishable items that were donated to St. Mary’s in Long Beach.
