Thanksgiving is an old custom and was common in Europe and Asia long before the Pilgrim Fathers gave their Thanksgiving in the autumn of1621.
Half of their number (51 people) had died during their terrible first winter. But in the autumn, the harvest was a success. They were so joyful, they organised a great feast. It lasted three days. Thanksgiving Day is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November.
The Pilgrim Fathers left Plymouth, England in September 1620. They were part of the group of 102 passengers who were travelling to New England (USA) to start a new life in the colonies. They arrived in Massachusettsafter 66 days at sea in terrible weather. Their ship, the Mayflower, remained until the following spring, providing them with shelter while they built houses for themselves.
By Tuesday October 11th San José de Calasanz opened its exposition about "The discovery of America in1492". After learning and preparing some Arts and Crafts about this theme, our students were all able to enjoy their projects at the SUM Room.
The same day a group of students from IES Castillo de Luna visited us and they enjoyed it a lot.
We invite the teachers and families to visit it. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did. I'd like to thank all of you for your time and dedication.
Remember the exposition will be hold until Tuesday October 19th!!!
