Middleton Elementary involves families in Thanksgiving contest
Middleton Elementary School grades K-6 held a best dressed turkey contest during Thanksgiving week. “I was talking with one of our teachers who was helping a friend in another state. The friend told her about a contest they were having,” said Doris Keller, Principal. “I thought it was a really neat idea so we decided to have one also.”
“The project was basically a contest to decorate a turkey using any material, any motif, and any method the student desired. We sent each student home with a drawing of a turkey. Those simple instructions were attached along with a request that this be made into a family project,” Keller said. “We want our students’ families involved in their children’s education. This was a fun way to do that.”
