While balancing jobs and class, the S4L students cooked a delicious meal that included turkey rolls with stuffing, cranberry sauce, stuffing, macaroni and cheese, cheesy potatoes, sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, caesar salad, biscuits and crescent rolls. They also outfitted their S4L suite in festive holiday decor. Many of the students’ families provided a plethora of desserts, including pies, cupcakes, and cookies.

The event is an excellent opportunity for the Skills for Life students to showcase the skills they’ve learned including shopping, budgeting and soft skills like entertaining guests.

Special education and S4L teachers even wore their “corniest” shirts with phrases like “pour some gravy on me,” and “I came in like a butterball” to name a few.
