Thanksgiving comes a little early to Verde Valley School. On Friday, November 20 at 5:30 our community will sit down to a traditional American Thanksgiving dinner before we depart for Thanksgiving break on Saturday morning.
As in past years, our dinner will feature greens, pumpkin and squash grown in the VVS garden. Chef Mike Briggs started slow cooking the pumpkin for homemade pumpkin pie earlier this week, and yesterday afternoon the students from the Shixi semester program picked the various varieties of lettuce still growing in the garden for the Thanksgiving salad.
Dinner begins at 5:30 and all VVS students are asked to attend. Parents, if you will be picking up your student for break on Friday please consider doing so after dinner. If that isn’t possible, the school can definitely accommodate earlier departures. Due to space restrictions, we’re afraid that only students and staff can attend the dinner.
