Students at Sebring schools gathered over a traditional thanksgiving feast hosted by the school’s food service team on Wednesday, November 17.
The cafeteria tables were decorated with festive pumpkins for the special gathering. Officers from Sebring’s Police Department worked alongside the district’s food service team at both B.L. Miller Elementary and McKinley Jr./Sr. High School, serving up turkey with all of the fixin’s - mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, and biscuits. There were also warm spiced apples and a pumpkin pudding dessert.
Teachers and staff dined with the students. McKinley staff engaged junior and senior high school students with questions such as “Would you rather swim in a pool of gravy or a pool of cranberry sauce?,” provoking some thoughtful and entertaining discussions.
After eating, McKinley high school students took the opportunity to reflect on what they are thankful for this year, sharing the blessings for which they are thankful -- friends, family, pets, and teachers -- with their peers.
“This is a tradition we are thankful to see return this year,” says Superintendent Toni Viscounte. “We are so blessed to have a great staff, an incredible foodservice team, and amazing students. We’re thankful to be able to share such a meaningful event with our Sebring family.”
