At Essex Valley School, our Thanksgiving Feast is a yearly tradition we’re always excited to participate in. Each Thanksgiving, EVS alumni return to enjoy a friendly basketball game with our current students. The game is always fun and highly competitive, and this year was no exception! After the game, the alumni, current students and staff enjoy a lovely feast prepared by our Culinary Arts department. This year they prepared a feast that many students and alumni stated was the best one to date! On behalf of all the staff at Essex Valley School, we would like to give a special thanks to our Culinary Arts department for the hard work it took to prepare such a delicious feast. Everyone ate until they were stuffed full, and some even went home with leftovers!
Each year, the alumni students’ visit has such a positive impact on our current students, as it gives them the opportunity to talk with and learn from their peers who have had a similar school experience. Essex Valley School staff also appreciate the opportunity to visit with former students, as they are able to hear the students’ stories of success and watch as they work to reach their potential. It is a rewarding experience for all!
