Participants of P.S. 8, a Children’s Aid Society Community School located in Washington Heights, and their families started their Thanksgiving celebrations a bit early this year. The school opened their doors on the evening of Friday, November 19th to about 450 families of its Early Childhood, After-School programs, Preventive and Family Literacy programs.

The Pre-Thanksgiving feast included Hispanic dishes of Pepper Steak, Roasted Chicken, Morro (rice and beans) and Sweet Plantains. The children ate quickly so that they had enough time get to the dance floor where they grooved, along with staff members, to lively beats provided by a special guest DJ. A raffle closed off the evening where 16 families received a turkey, courtesy of the local McDonalds.
