For more years than most can remember, the first and second graders at Sandy Creek Elementary School have been reenacting the first Thanksgiving in a pageant featuring songs, costumes, and an audience of friends and family. Under the direction of chorus teacher Jackie Hobbs, the students performed several Thanksgiving-themed songs complete with adorable actions to accompany the songs.

One of the most beloved traditions in the elementary school, the students spent weeks creating their costumes and learning the songs and movements associated with them in preparation for their celebration. Classroom teachers, specials teachers and more worked to bring the program together, including the feast which featured many of the items on the menu from the first Thanksgiving.

Sporting their costumes of Native American and Pilgrim attire, the students enjoyed their part, but the parents and guests enjoyed it just as much, if not more, based on their responses to the songs.
