Gobbling up a thankful feast

Parents pitched in Wednesday to serve some 60 Emerson School first graders a Thanksgiving feast.  

Before digging in, the children celebrated the day in song, one about an immigrant coming to America. “And the land was sweet and good and I did what I could,” the children sang.  

And they knew what they were thankful for: Michelle said she was thankful for the food. “Thank-you for my mommy,” said Victoria. Anya was thankful for “all living things,” and Tyler D. was thankful for her friends. Like Victoria, Ebony said she was thankful “for my mom.”
