Students and teachers share a feast they prepared with guests from St. Boniface and Our Lady of Lourdes parishes.
Cory Hartman, Cameron Quisno, Andrea Winke and Timmy Marquette prepare dinner rolls for the Thanksgiving feast.
Parents topped the list of blessings St. Boniface students are thankful for, followed closely by brothers and sister, pets and pumpkin pie. The annual feast prepared by students and teachers and shared with invited guests is an opportunity to work together and serve others as well as give thanks.
Over plates packed with turkey and all the trimmings the school family and their guests shared what they were thankful for, and their favorite parts of the feast.
“I’m thankful for ASL (American Sign Language)” said Savannah Hetrick, “so I can talk to my grandparents”. Madison Petersen said she is grateful for her Mom and Dad, as did Stevie Heschel and James Johnson-Konoff. Seamus McHale is thankful for his sister, and Josh Johnson “That Pepper (the lost family cat) came home”.
Principal Milagros Greggila said “What can I say? I’m thankful for this school, for so many reasons.” Fr. Tim Ferris gives thanks for “faith, salvation, eternal life”.
Some students enjoyed preparing the homemade dishes the most, while others liked eating them even more, particularly the pumpkin pie. All had fun sharing the meal with their teachers and guests from St. Boniface and Our Lady of Lourdes parish.
“My favorite part of the feast is listening to the students tell about their favorite parts, and what they’re thankful for,” said teacher Theresa Radsick.
