Thanksgiving Feast and 1/2 Day of School – Lower School
November 20 @ 9:20 am - 12:00 pm
Thanksgiving Feast and 1/2 Day of School – Lower School Only
Dear Parents and Guardians,
The holiday season is upon us! Holidays are a time for tradition, family togetherness and celebration. The Fayetteville Academy lower school has many traditions, but there is one that is near and dear to our school, and it is the lower school Thanksgiving feast which will take place on Tuesday, November 20. Not only do we share food, but we share in the company of our families which fosters the bonds that our children are building with each other each day.
We are asking that each family bring an item to share for our feast. The classrooms and/or grade levels will send home additional information on how to sign up for specific items needed.
This year, we will have the feast in the old gym. This is a new endeavor to create a time for fellowship for our entire lower school family. Our Thanksgiving assembly will begin at 9:20 a.m. At the conclusion of the assembly, families are invited to join their student(s) in the classroom for special activities before being released to go to the old gym for the feast with their families. This time will allow for any final food preparations to be complete prior to the feast.
We would like this to be a lower school event only, so we encourage you to make other arrangements for younger siblings who do not attend Fayetteville Academy, allowing you the opportunity to spend quality time with your child (children) who attend our lower school. Middle and Upper school siblings will not be asked to join us for logistical and practical reasons.
We do ask that while in the gym, the students take the time to enjoy fellowship and refrain from running around in the gym or on the bleachers. Parents, we will need your help in this area to ensure the safety of our students.
Thank you for your time, and we look forward to celebrating this time of year with you.
Head of Lower School
