Give Thanks for Head Start!

Give Thanks for Head Start!

November is a month where we reflect on the things in life that we are grateful for. As we gather with family and friends, we are reminded of all the blessings and opportunities we have had in our lives. This month, we encourage you to think about how you are grateful for Head Start! Whether you are a parent who has received job training, a teacher who had the opportunity to change the lives of children, or an alum who started your path to success at Head Start, we invite you to post and give thanks for Head Start!

How can you participate?

We encourage programs and parents to participate by engaging in a fun November craft activity - the Hand Turkey! This craft project is easy to complete with children and a great way to engage them in thinking about what they are grateful for. Children can draw what they are thankful for at Head Start on the palm of the hand/body of the turkey. We encourage programs to post these on social media and tag their Members of Congress or hand-deliver the turkeys to Member offices! To help us make sure we see them all, please tag @NatlHeadStart and use the hashtag #HeadStartWorks
