CLARKS SUMMIT, LACKAWANNA COUNTY –It’s that time of year where we can’t stop thinking about turkey and pumpkin pie! That’s what was served up in the Abington Heights Middle School life skills class on Tuesday. The class, which falls in the vocational, functional, academic, and communication, or VFAC, program, helps developmentally challenged students learn the stuff they need in order to be successful and independent later in life.
Monday, in honor of Thanksgiving, they spent the entire day learning to cook a Thanksgiving feast! Tuesday, it was time to dig in.
“I’m proud of my classmates, and yes” said Matthew Tokash, a VFAC student, “Today has been an awesome day! I’m so happy that everybody got to come today and have a nice feast with all of us! “
This is the fourth year the class has made their Thanksgiving dinner. They say they’re excited to keep the tradition going.
