day_of_thanks2.pngStudents and staff will celebrate our Shabazz community with a Day of Thanks (formerly Turkey Day). On Tuesday, November 26, students will attend regular classes for periods 1-3, which will be followed by a Thanksgiving-themed community lunch, movies, karaoke, games, and more. 

Regular classes period 1-3. Dismissal will be at 2:00 pm.

Shabazz will provide main dish, but we need you to make it a meal by bringing in something (side dish/dessert) to share. Please let Brian (bdcounselman@madison.k12.wi.us) know by Friday 11/22 if you plan to bring a dish. Your notice will help greatly with the planning. Thank you! 

Due to space and food limitations, Turkey Day is unfortunately not a day where we are explicitly inviting alumni or parents to attend the event, but (as with any community lunch) if someone is actively seeking to attend the event between 11:30-12:30 to share in a meal they will not be turned away (assuming they are positively contributing to the community spirit of the day).

If you are unable to send a dish, a donation of $3 per student would be gladly accepted, but not required.
