Thank You Card To Your Grandparents 

Please take this time in homeroom to write a “thank you” card to your grandparents. If you know one of your grandparents will be joining you for the Thanksgiving Prayer Service next week, we encourage you to write your “thank you” note to that grandparent. If not, please choose any grandparent or family member that you can give this card to over the Thanksgiving holiday. 

Using the materials you brought with you make a card expressing your gratitude to this family member. You can write about why you are thankful for them, how much they mean to you, a special memory you have with this person, or the activities you enjoy doing with them. This card does not need to be lengthy but should be thoughtful and meaningful. 

Please keep your card in a safe place so that you can bring it with you to the prayer service on Tuesday.
