Thanksgiving is the perfect opportunity to show gratitude to our educators, parents/guardians, students and community members for your continued support of our schools. Whether you have brought in cans for a food drive, volunteered your time in our classrooms, served on our FSA or Advisory Team, or just visited our website to find out the latest news you have supported education in Galloway Township. A continued partnership is what makes Galloway Schools a place "where children and learning come first", and for that, I thank you! Please take a moment to read the short poem below, reflect on a quote or two, or click on the links to enjoy some short seasonal video clips. Have a great week!

Thanksgiving Feasting
When the Halloween pumpkins are gone,
And the leaves have all fallen to ground,
When the air has turned windy and cold,
Then Thanksgiving will soon be around.

Thoughts of loved ones all feasting together,
Pleasant pictures from past times appear
To dwell in each heart and each mind--
Then Thanksgiving is finally here!

The kitchen has scrumptious aromas,
The dining room looks oh, so fine,
Decorations with pilgrims and turkeys,
And now we are ready to dine!

First the napkins are placed on our laps;
Now the prayer for the meal to be blessed,
Then we stuff the good food in our tummies,
And we hope for it all to digest!

By Joanna Fuchs

"Give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way."  ~Native American Saying

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.  It turns what we have into enough, and more.  It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.  It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.  Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow."  ~Melody Beattie

"Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving."  ~W.T. Purkiser
