Turkey in the Ground

Turkey in the Ground? You did say “turkey” didn’t you? In the ground? Seriously? 

The Thursday before Thanksgiving Break  is affectionately referred to as “Digging Day” here at TCA. Throughout that day, students in all grades work in shifts to dig a large pit beside Eagle Gym. After school is dismissed, a bonfire is built and set aflame in the pit. That evening, we have the Athletic Booster Club Chili Cook-Off and Supper, a silent auction featuring the Dirty Dozen turkeys, class gift baskets, and more! And there is the always fund Junior Class Carnival for the younger kids in the Secondary Cafeteria!  The next day (Friday), is the school-wide Thanksgiving Feast provided by the TCA Parent-Teacher Fellowship. Everyone is dismissed for the Thanksgiving break after lunch!
