As the Month of November comes down to an end. Thanksgiving Break will be upon the student and staff population soon. This week long break from school starts from November twenty third and shoots till December second. This long break from school provides a lot of opportunities for fun and festive activities. October and November are two of the most festive months of the year and they are back to back.
Some students already have some plans for break such as Nik Roberson who said” I plan on eating a lot of food and catching up on some much needed sleep. It will be a good break from all my classes to just relax and spend time with friends and family.” In another interview with Mrs. Garrison, she about what she was most excited for about Thanksgiving. She answered,” I am mostly excited to just be at home with my family, kids, and husband and having a good Thanksgiving dinner.” For the majority everyone is looking forward to some quality time with family and friends. Use the time off for rest and quality time with the loved ones around you.
