Thanksgiving Brings a Welcome Break


During the week of Thanksgiving, students got to enjoy a week of rest and spend quality time with their family. This was a great time for students to take a much needed break from school work. Although most got to take the week off, many seniors had to work on college applications as the December 1st deadline draws near. Senior football player Andrew Dobbs was one of these students. Andrew said “I had football practice all week, and couldn’t travel out of town. I also spent a lot of time applying for honors colleges, and it feels good to have those out of the way.” The Eagles are preparing for the state championship this Friday against the Beechwood Tigers, and practice during the break was crucial. Senior Hadley Whipple was in the same boat as Andrew, as she had practice over break. She said “I spent the week getting ready for the basketball home opener, as well as spending time with my family.”

Along with friends and sports, many students also watched football over the break. With NFL Thanksgiving football, college rivalry games on Saturday, and NFL Sunday, it was a great stretch of games for sports fans. One of these fans was devout Michigan fan Mac Crosbie, 12. He spent his Saturday watching the Wolverines win their rivalry game against Ohio State. He also said, “I enjoyed the good food as well as the the time of rest and relaxation.” With students returning to school, this week of break has given them the time to recharge. With two weeks left before finals, everyone is excited for the end of the semester and Christmas break.
