Lions Whisper – Thanksgiving Holiday Activities

Written by Kamieya B. and Wendy Y.

Galileo has a variety of students that come from different backgrounds, thus producing many different traditions that are celebrated with family over special breaks. Galileopress was interested in what students and staff did to celebrate the occasion, whether it was resting at home from the stress of school, or going on vacation to make the most out of the break.

“I wrote letters of recommendation, went to every doctor appointment I put off in the year, and then went to visit friends and family here because they do not live out here. I slept so much. I had lots of stuff around the house to do. But normally I usually go on trips and stuff over the weekend but not this year. I actually went to Vancouver last week.”
