NT students hold an early Thanksgiving feast

Nearly 200 students and faculty took part in the school's traditional Thanksgiving turkey dinner


Tonawanda News — “I help my nana make a pie,” eighth-grader Caitlin McMahon said, adding that her grandmother makes great pies.

Fourth-grader Brett Verrall agreed with the comments about Thanksgiving, but added “don’t forget we get a couple of days off,” which brought nodded agreement from those sitting at his table.

Maddie Sowinski, an eighth-grader, said she, too, helps her grandmother make pumpkin pie. “And I don’t even really like pumpkin pie,” she admitted.

Jacob Frederiksen, a fifth-grader, really likes mashed potatoes and gravy. “And my mom is a good cook.”

Perhaps seventh-grader Haley Nason summed up Thanksgiving best.

“The food’s good and we’ll celebrate at my aunt’s with family and friends from Syracuse and New York City,” he said. “But it is a good time to show thanks to God and appreciate what we have.”
