Second-graders from Babylon Elementary School performed Thanksgiving-themed songs and enjoyed a holiday feast on Nov. 21 in the school cafeteria.
    
The students performed “The Thanksgiving Boogie” and “The 12 Days of Thanksgiving” in front of a captivated audience of Babylon Elementary School kindergarteners, and then dined on tasty Thanksgiving treats. Many of the second-graders got into the holiday spirit by wearing decorative Pilgrim and Native American hats they had crafted during art class.
    
The Thanksgiving celebration is an annual event at Babylon Elementary School, and school principal Dana Basile used this year’s feast to lend a helping hand to Babylon families that were affected by Hurricane Sandy. While the students were given the opportunity to celebrate and enjoy each other’s company, Mrs. Basile also set aside a portion of the event to offer the second-graders a chance to brainstorm new ideas on how they can help Babylon families in need.
