Happy Thanksgiving Weekend
The school will be closed this Thursday, November 28th and Friday, November 29th in observance of Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is an annual national holiday celebrated in the United States on the 4th Thursday in November. This is a day to “give thanks” by gathering with family and friends for a traditional meal that includes a turkey. This holiday commemorates a harvest festival celebrated by the Pilgrims in 1621. On behalf of The Scholars' Academy, we hope everyone has a very Happy Thanksgiving and enjoys this time with loved ones to give thanks for all the good things in life.
