Aaron School Thanksgiving Feast
In November, Aaron School 30th Street hosted an annual Thanksgiving Feast! Each year students and faculty work together to compile a tasting menu and prepare food for the entire Aaron School 30th Street community. This year, the upper classman were given the responsibility to cook for the school as they have previous experience in the culinary lab. Each student had his or her turn orchestrating the cutting, mixing, and operating of stoves and ovens. As the cooking went on through the week leading up to the event, the aromas from the kitchen drifted down the halls and into the classrooms. Teachers and students popped their heads in to see what was happening and what delicious foods were being prepared.
The students prepared sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, corn bread, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin cake, chocolate chip cookies, mashed potatoes, vegetarian stuffing and of course, turkey with gravy. The gym was decorated from floor to ceiling with paper crafted pumpkins, and colorful paintings based off the artist Gustav Klimt’s “Tree of Life.” Ms. Glaaser and her art classes worked hard to transform the atmosphere into a colorful fall festival. It was truly a spectacular sight to see the whole school come together to give thanks and enjoy one another’s company.
Students and faculty enjoyed the food, socialized with one another and discussed their upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. A wonderful speech was given by the new Student Council President to thank all of those who worked so hard cooking the food, preparing the decorations, and making the event so much fun, and to wish everyone a safe and Happy Thanksgiving. The students can’t wait to see what is on next year’s menu!
