Once your student has written a paragraph, he or she can purchase turkey features for $1 each. Buy as many feathers as you like beginning the morning of Tuesday, November 4th until Tuesday, November 18th. The winning grade level will be the grade with the most turkey feathers purchased. That grade level will receive special prizes and a party. (You only need to write one paragraph, but you can buy as many feathers as you like.)
