LEWISTON – St. Joseph’s School began its holiday celebrations early with a number of special events.

On Nov. 19, the students in the fourth grade presented the annual “Bible Walk.” With the direction of their teacher, Christine Cole, each student wrote a story about prominent character in the Bible from Noah to Jesus and shared the story with the school community in costumes that they designed.

On Nov. 23, the first grade performed “The First Thanksgiving,” a play in which the students designed and built the background scenery. With the assistance of their teacher, Kathy Jalbert, the students played Pilgrims and Native Americans, portraying the gratitude at the heart of the Thanksgiving holiday.

Before classes were dismissed for the holiday, the eighth-graders led the Thanksgiving Prayer Service that day as well. The theme was “Praising God for All We Have.” Each student in the school wrote their personal thanks on a cutout of a feather, and the feathers were joined to form a bird.
