A school-wide Thanksgiving feast has been a tradition at Ida B. Wells for years. The kitchen becomes a kitchen again in a different sense and we serve up a classic fare for the student body. Teachers brought in cooked turkeys, hams, mashed potatoes and salad.
This year, my students contributed a few pies, and did much of the prep work. While many of them were suspicious of the pumpkin pie we made, there is a magic pride that happens when you see your efforts put on a plate and served to others – and then see them enjoy it. I had a few students come up to me and say how good it was too.
And this apple pie? I had to fight people off so those who made it could at least see the results!
Thank you to Mrs. E. & Mrs. J. for carrying the responsibility for this feast for so many years and for sharing those valuable pearls of wisdom into this year. We hope you will be back in full force next year.
