Inman Elementary School Classes Prepare Thanksgiving Feast

Two classes at Nixa's Inman Elementary School planned and prepared a Thanksgiving feast for the district's staff. The students made decorations, shopped for food and also prepared the food all the while learning valuable lessons. KSMU's Joe Morgan has more.

Teacher Amanda Del Conte is helping a student measure butter, something that she hopes will help improves the student's math skills. Some students measured ingredients, some students washed dishes and other students stirred mashed potatoes at Inman Elementary this morning preparing for their Thanksgiving feast. Students and teachers started cooking at 8 this morning in preparation for their lunch time feast which was set for 10:30. Teacher Julie Karlson says that planning this event has taken some time.

Patrick was one of the students that helped cook this morning.

This event helped students learn math skills as well as other skills like communication, art and planning. One of the students, Tyler, explains what he and the others students did in art class.

Teacher Amanda Del Conte says that she planned this event to give the students a more hands on learning experience while also stressing the meaning of Thanksgiving.

One of the students, Shane, explains what he likes most about Thanksgiving.

Volunteers from the area also helped prepare the meal today. Mary Katherine McKee was one of those volunteers and explains why she helped.

The class prepared a full Thanksgiving feast for 20 faculty members. The feast included turkey, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, bread, and multiple pies. For KSMU News, I'm Joe Morgan.
