Third Grade PowWow

The third grade put on a great presentation for the parents last week. Claire was part of the Chinook tribe and her Native American name was Fast Tree Frog. After a wonderful program full of poetry and song, we had a Native American feast. Each child was instructed to try something they had not eaten before. This would not be difficult. The menu consisted of:
Corn, pies, roasted pine nuts, venison, goose jerky, fry bread, fruit, berries, mashed potatoes, and squirrel. Yes, you read that correctly. And yes, Claire ate some. The kids all learned a lot and had a ton of fun! Thanks so much Mrs. Pfruender and Mrs. DeHaan!
