EPS wraps up 2018 with Winter Concert and Turkey Luncheon

by Sylene Argent

Before going on a two-week break to enjoy time with family over the holidays, Essex Public School staff members and students enjoyed a Winter Concert and a Turkey Luncheon.

  On Monday, December 17, the students at Essex Public School enjoyed an afternoon of celebrating the holiday season during a school-wide assembly.

  The students enjoyed the sounds of the school’s concert band and a choir of talented singers share holiday cheer during the assembly. Each group presented an array of holiday tunes the participating students spent a lot of time learning for the special event.

  On Wednesday, December 19, the EPS School Parent Council, with assistance from Drew Verdam, a Sous-Chef at the University of Windsor, provided a turkey Luncheon to the whole school. Many local Essex businesses donated food to help offset the cost.

  The classes were broken into two groups to enjoy the meal in the school gymnasium. The kindergarten to grade three students enjoyed eating together, as did the grade four through eight students.

  “It is a nice holiday luncheon,” EPS Principal Bruno Pallotto said. “It is a time for everyone to sit and eat together. The kids love it. They look forward to it every year. The meal is delicious.”
