Thanksgiving Offers a Full of Roster of Activities for Eagle Rock School Students

For most of us, it’s tough being away from immediate family during the holidays — especially the big ones like Thanksgiving. So here at Eagle Rock School and Professional Development Center, we go to great lengths to provide two full days of events and activities for our students. In that way, the school environment provides a second family-like experience.

This holiday is no exception, with so many activities on the agenda that there’s little time to think about home. Here’s the rundown:

  • 10 a.m. — Gathering — with everyone in attendance (if you’re unfamiliar with Gathering, please read Eagle Rock Gathering: A Daily Ritual For Coming Together)
