    more about our thanksgiving lunch:

    On Thursday, November 17, 2022 we will be serving our Thanksgiving lunch at school and you will have the option to join your student on campus during their lunchtime. In order to properly prepare for the event (and by that meaning we order enough food, etc), we need to get a head count for lunches that day.

    If you'd like to come to campus for our Thanksgiving lunch, please complete this brief form to RSVP. Having this information in advance helps us us to prepare for the amount of individuals coming to campus so we can have everyone safely checked in through the front office as smoothly as possible while following AISD safety protocols.

    Adult guests can pay for their Thanksgiving lunch as they enter the line using cash (no bills larger that $20, please). Personal checks or credit cards are not accepted. Adult meals are $4.50 per person. You can also add funds to your child's SchoolCafe account and pay for your meal that way as well. This is an optional choice to buy a school lunch. You may also bring your own lunch for yourself and/or your student. We are looking forward to having this wonderful event back on campus this year!

    Junior Achievement Information:

    We are excited to welcome Junior Acheivement representatives to campus on Friday, Nov. 18. They will be joining classrooms to provide lessons and activities to prepare our students for future success.
