Students go back in time

November 18, 2004

Thomasville - Thursday was pioneer day at Garrison-Pilcher Elementary in Thomasville. Students learned how native Americans and pilgrims invented ways to entertain themselves, and how they had to trade goods in order to get the things they needed.

Stefanie Harvey says, "We want to take them back to those days and let them realize it was very important how they lived. They worked real hard, they had to hunt for their living."

The school wasn't going to hold Pioneers day this year, because it's such a big undertaking, but parents pitched in, so the students could take part in the fun and educational day.
