As the holiday season approaches, the 3rd grade students took some time to think about all of the wonderful gifts that God has given to us and to thank Him for them. The students wanted to thank God for the earth He created for us, along with the food and water He provides. They are grateful for the gift of family—moms, dads, grandmas, grandpas, brothers, and sisters, etc. They appreciate their homes and all the comforts that are provided to them by the grace of God.  The children are thankful for their pets and all animals of the world. They thank God for their teacher (and I thank God for them). We all appreciate how precious life is and are humbled by that awesome gift from God. AND. . . We are all thankful for St. Stephen School—a great place to learn.
