On November 24, 2015, Essex Valley School hosted its annual Thanksgiving celebration. The event was attended by current students, student alumni, and school staff. It included a basketball game that allowed the EVS basketball team to practice its skills against former students, as well as a delicious meal that was prepared and served by our Culinary Arts students and their instructors. Both students and staff enjoyed the opportunity to socialize in a positive way and learn of the recent experiences and successes of our alumni.
In addition, EVS was able to provide several pre-made Thanksgiving meals to needy families both in our school community, as well as in the immediate area.
