You may think that traditionally everyone celebrates Thanksgiving on the last Thursday in November. You would be correct! However, ACS has their own celebration on Wednesday, the day before the big day. Prep work actually starts on Tuesday when students in grades 5 through 8 make apple, pumpkin, and chocolate pudding pies. In addition they prepared 2 big trays of cornbread.
Our FSA parents took over the morning of the feast with the preparation of all the wonderful sides that go with the star of the show, the turkey. Grades 3 and 4 completed a STEM project together which culminated with a parade through the halls of school showing off their Thanksgiving floats. Grade 5 provided entertainment for our guests with a poem and explanation of the history behind the day. This was followed by Father Ivan’s blessing of the food. There was nothing else left to do except to eat! Thank you to all involved in the making of the feast.
Our ACS family wishes everyone a blessed and happy Thanksgiving!
