A Tradition Continues
mtringali ::: Dearborn Academy

On November 24, Dearborn Academy hosted a wonderful Thanksgiving meal for all of the school’s students, a Dearborn Academy tradition that can be traced back to the beginning of the school's program.

The annual Thanksgiving meal reflects the school's emphasis on giving and sharing, provides the students with the opportunity to share a meal with staff and classmates, and helps the entire school community reflect on what we are thankful for this season.

At the end of each meal, the spirit of giving and sharing continues—students and staff gather extra turkey and fixings and deliver them to a local homeless shelter.
