Recognizing the meaning of Thanksgiving was the theme at La Cañada Elementary School on Friday as kindergartners dressed as Native Americans, first graders performed songs and poems and fifth graders gathered for a bountiful dinner. The kindergarten class made head dresses with colorful feathers and spent their snack time enjoying a Native American trail mix of nuts and berries, with a little chocolate mixed in. Student Drake Di Paolo ended up wearing more trail mix than actually consuming it. ?

Sixth graders at Paradise Canyon Elementary celebrated the end of the first quarter and the completion of their core lit book, "The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle," with a party. In the spirit of the story, which is set in the 1800s, PCY parents converted the lunch area to mimic life aboard the clipper ship Seahawk. The students dressed up as crew members and enjoyed several activities, including a clipper ship puzzle game and a knot-tying contest. The hungry "ship hands" also feasted on homemade chocolate chip scones, trail mix and special "grog."

Pizza, “mystery meat” and the usual fare were nowhere to be found at the La Cañada Elementary School on Friday as the place was transformed into a Thanksgiving scene fit for a pilgrim. Pumpkins, fresh pomegranates and green branches with red holly berries colorfully decorated long tables. The meal included turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce and all the trimmings. Students sang songs with themes of gratitude and performed a skit, “The First Thanksgiving,” which pointed out that pilgrims had no sugar - and therefore no cranberry sauce - as well as other Thanksgiving facts.

If you?re looking for a way to help support U.S. troops serving in Iraq or elsewhere overseas, the city of La Cañada Flintridge Youth Council is soliciting donations of cash and supplies to send as part of 50,000 care packages being sent this month to soldiers and other military personnel deployed overseas, in coordination with the California National Guard?s Operation Gratitude. The La Cañada group became involved in the activity a few weeks ago as a way to help the local community, said Kandice Jung, 15, a student at Flintridge Preparatory School and member of the Youth Council.

Ahhh?it's nearly Valentine's Day and I can almost taste the chocolates I hope will be coming my way. Actually, every day is Candy Day in our office. Ad rep Lisa Stanners keeps a glass bowl on her desk filled with chocolates. And, being an insider, I know she accommodates special requests. My husband, who for some reason enjoys spreading out his homework in the Valley Sun building on weekends, has left Lisa notes requesting more crunchy candy after polishing off her stock; I only had to let her know once how much I prefer rich, dark chocolates.

Valley View by Fereva Truthfully, I expected it to be a quiet day. Cliff Jones and Bob Tanabe had enlisted several volunteers, including me, to assist at local supermarkets last Saturday for a "We Support Our Troops" effort. The idea was to request donations from folks before they shopped, items which could be dropped in a collection box outside each market, then sent to Iraq to benefit the Marines of HMH 465. The acronym HMH stands for Marine Heavy Helicopter squadron and yes, I know that doesn't make sense in terms of alpha sequential, but that's the way it is. A whole lot of stuff in life doesn't make sense, so we're gonna go with the flow and not worry about it. Cpl. Michael T. Morton, son of LCUSD head maintainance Marty Morton, is a member of HMH 465. Mike is serving in Iraq as I write.
