Taking a Thanksgiving Mental Break

The Freedomsgiving template created by Taylor Lech used by SCA.

Freedom High School had its first long break since the start of the school year, and it gave students an opportunity to relax from the stresses of online school. FHS also gave students a way to stay involved such as the Newsmagazines Thanksgiving video and provided ways for students to earn spirit points through the Freedomsgiving SCA template.

As the schools hard at work to reduce online school homework given, most students felt relieved and eager to take time away from school and enjoy the break.

“I was really excited to spend time with family and friends as well as have a break from school,” senior Taylor Lech said.

FHS SCA’s Freedomsgiving template allowed student to answer simple questions about their Thanksgiving preferences to earn spirit points for their grade. The template allowed students to express who they were grateful for, what football team they were supporting over the holiday, and their favorite Thanksgiving tradition. Students would then post it on their Instagram stories and tag SCA to get their points.

“I thought it was a great way to keep students involved in the school community from a distance,” junior Jillian Morse said.

Students from the FHS newsmagazine put together a favorite Thanksgiving Meal video and posted it to the student website Uncagedfhs.org. It didn’t provide students with spirit points, but did provide another way to stay involved connecting with their fellow students from online school and talk about their Thanksgiving traditions.

Even though FHS students couldn’t physically be together before the Thanksgiving Holiday, the school community worked hard to keep students involved and provide alternative ways to support each other.
