Pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving









Thanksgiving is approaching quickly and Carlmont students are beginning to get excited for a five day weekend.

Carlmont gets Nov. 21 until Nov. 25 off to celebrate Thanksgiving and take a break from school. This year, Thanksgiving Day falls on Thursday, Nov. 22.
Carlmont students are planning to enjoy the five day weekend in a number of ways.

On Thanksgiving, many students plan to spend the day with their family and delicious food.

Sophomore Mitchell Wright said, “I am going to go to my grandparents’ house to have a Thanksgiving dinner. My favorite Thanksgiving foods are the turkey and gravy and the pumpkin pie.”

Sophomore Brian Palma stated, “My family is having dinner together with some of my brother’s friends. I can’t wait for the mashed potatoes with chives and butter.”

Some students are going to be celebrating Thanksgiving but that’s not the only thing that they’re looking forward too. Students are looking forward to spending time away from school.

Palma said, “I’m looking forward to not having a ton of homework, I hope.”

For others, this break is a chance to catch up on some much needed sleep.

Wright stated, “I am looking forward to sleeping plus just not having school.”

With all the Thanksgiving plans and time off from school, students are waiting in anticipation for the extended weekend.
