The send-off to our 2014 Thanksgiving vacation was a delicious meal, in the great Kingfisher tradition of focusing on food. Students arrived at school at 8:30 and attended periods 1 and 2, then began setting up a very long series of tables in our hall. In the meantime, the Commons tables were covered in various dishes to share: turkey, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, stuffing, green beans, cranberry sauce, corn pudding, rolls, and all manner of desserts. The food was prepared by teachers, and many desserts were brought by high school students, including Senora Yorky’s Spanish class.
Dr. Gates gave thanks and we filed through the Commons oldest to youngest. When everyone had had seconds, he sent the students to get dessert, youngest to oldest. The meal was scrumptious and relaxing and it didn’t take long to clean up, because everyone pitched in. We are indeed grateful for the second year of our school’s existence and for the students and teachers who make everything worthwhile. Have a great vacation!
