Students And Staff Thanksgiving Plans

Thanksgiving is a day for people in the U.S to give thanks for what they have. Families and friends get together for a meal which traditionally includes a roast turkey, potatoes, vegetables, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie. 

 

In some cities and towns there are parades during the Thanksgiving weekend. In most areas these festivities also mark the opening of the Christmas shopping season. 

 

If students and family wanted to go somewhere for Thanksgiving there was an event called “Thanksgiving at Mason Street Grill.” This happened in the restaurant in the Pfister Hotel that was open for the Thanksgiving holiday. 

 

Most government offices, businesses, schools, universities, colleges and other organizations were closed on Thanksgiving Day. AHS was closed from Wednesday the 22nd to the 26th for Thanksgiving break. Students returned on Monday, the 27th. 

 

Thanksgiving Day is said to be one of the busiest periods for travel in the USA. This can cause overcrowding in some areas. Seasonal parades and busy football games can also cause disruption to local traffic. Many offices and businesses allow staff to have a long four day weekend. Public transit systems usually do not operate on their regular schedules. 

 

Jessica Thompson, a Arrowhead High School Special Education teacher says,

 “We are traveling, but not far. We always go to my parents house to see my mom’s extended family. My mom only lives two streets down from us, so it’s a nice short drive. We also head later in the weekend to see my husband’s family. We have made it a tradition of going to see the Menomonee Falls Holiday parade with great-grandma. The only other thing we may do this weekend is drive around to see Christmas lights. My daughter loves everyone’s holiday displays. We usually watch the Thanksgiving Day Parade on TV while we are finishing up preparing Thanksgiving Lunch! We have occasionally watched the dog show, but with children around, they usually prefer to see all of the floats and balloons.”
