Students of Darlene’s Basic English evening class planned and organized a Thanksgiving Celebration event for October 5, 2017, for all of the evening students, as part of their English class. This event was also subsidized by The Learning Exchange.
Students practiced English by discussing party options, planning the menu and events. They wrote invitations, invited other students, collected money to order pizza from Domino’s, organized a dance instructor, choose music and made “to do” and shopping lists. The night of the event, students came in early to set up the cafeteria to throw the party for fellow classmates. Over 50 students and staff joined the group to enjoy:
- Pizza from Domino’s
- Soft drinks, juice and coffee
- Assorted chips
- Halloween candy
- Pumpkin pie with whipped cream
One of the highlights of the party was dance instruction by professional dance instructor Veronica from Vidya’s group. Music and special lighting effects were enjoyed by all thanks to DJ Marco. Students from all classes were encouraged to practice their English conversation skills to get to know one another.
The celebration was a great success!!
