Thanksgiving break
Students enjoy time off for a long weekend

– by Haston H, junior –

Whether you are a teacher or student, parent or child, everyone is thankful for Thanksgiving break. The students of FBTA would agree 100% they all needed a much-deserved break. 

Many students traveled over the holiday. Madison V, junior, especially enjoyed her trip to Connecticut to spend Thanksgiving day with her extended family. 

“I loved getting to see my family members I haven’t seen in forever!” said Madison. 

Some traveled farther than others though, like Ethan C, sophomore. He traveled to Atlanta, Georgia, and then over to Alabama. He was excited to see his grandparents he had not seen in a long time. While in Alabama, they hiked the start of the Appalachian Trail. 

“It was such a beautiful hike,” said Ethan.

Others stayed a lot closer for Thanksgiving. Melanie T, senior, enjoyed seeing her grandparents that live right here in Virginia. One of Melanie’s highlights of Thanksgiving break was the Turkey Trot she and her family participated in. 

“I enjoyed the challenge of the race, but I loved getting to spend time with my family during the run the most,” said Melanie.

Whether you traveled far or near, I hope students got the break they needed, and everyone had the best Thanksgiving Day ever!
