10th annual English as a New Language (ENL) Thanksgiving Feast held at Lincoln School

10th annual English as a New Language (ENL) Thanksgiving Feast held at Lincoln School

Performances and food filled the auditorium with a festive spirit as the 10th annual English as a New Language (ENL) Thanksgiving Feast took place at Lincoln School on Friday, November 18, 2022. Principal Rebecca Jones greeted everyone, and the students began their performances. 

Enzo Rojas, a fourth-grade student, gave a presentation titled “Pilgrims Were Immigrants Too.” He connected the pilgrims’ experiences to those of modern-day immigrants. 

“One way we are similar to the pilgrims is that when we arrived to our new home, we got help from other people,” said Enzo Rojas. “My family was helped by my aunt, and the pilgrims were also helped. Squanto, from the Wampanoag Tribe, showed them how to plant, grow crops and forage for food.” 

Carrying on the theme of togetherness, fourth graders Mabroka Alomasi and Alexa Figueroa presented “We’re Not so Different After All.” In their performance, they played the roles of pilgrims who came to America and saw that they had many things in common with the other people there. Second and third graders then sang “America to Me." Immediately after, the feast began.
