It was that time of year again, and Kim Houston’s class at Virgin Valley Elementary School got busy writing about what “I am thankful for.”
These VVES second-grade students put a lot of thought into things they give thanks for, such as the weather, teacher, clean water, the world, holidays, family, life, oxygen and even the bees for their honey.
“It’s so special to hear younger children being appreciative for nonmaterial items,” said Muriel Troyner, VVES Yearbook Advisor. “Even Ms. Houston had something she is thankful for, and that is having such a great class!” she added.
Troyner also teaches fourth-grade and submits news articles about the school.
