In a spirit of “Giving Thanks”, schools throughout the EdisonLearning network held special Thanksgiving luncheons prior to the holiday.
Chambers High School in Homestead, Sunrise High School in Ft. Lauderdale, and the Bridgescape Academy in Chicago’s North Lawndale neighborhood held special gatherings to offer the entire school community an opportunity to pause and reflect on the persons and things they are thankful for.
Staff members prepared home cooked dishes for the students, in order to share a recipe that they use during the holidays. Some staff members also purchased food items that they knew the students love to eat. At Sunrise High, turkeys were donated for the luncheon by Masonic McBride 390 Lodge.
