The members of the group decided to organize a "Friendsgiving Day" on November 22; students and staff came together to enjoy good food and fun times with each other.
The students and staff brought a variety of delicious food for the meal which included: turkey, ham, pulled pork, flautas, meatballs, stuffing, potatoes, vegetables, and desserts. Steven D. said, "The homemade food was wonderful." For entertainment, some students played the Nintendo Switch game that one of the students brought from home. Other students had fun dancing Cumbias, while the rest of the group   simply enjoyed visiting with classmates and staff. The whole room was filled with smiles and laughter.
Sophomore Jessica B. said, "Thanksgiving isn't about the food, it's about spending time with the people you really care about." Well said Jessica!
