The scent of the feast enticed the nose, the decorations tantalized the eyes, and children in headdresses scurried through the halls chattering on their way to eat stone soup. The Thanksgiving celebration on Tuesday at Payson Elementary School (PES) marked the first time all second-graders in the district gathered to commemorate the holiday. “We have done this at our separate schools, now we’re doing this all together. We’re finding as we share what we did at our other schools that we have a lot of commonalities in how we celebrate,” said Brianne DeWitt, a second-grade teacher who taught at Frontier Elementary School last year.
