On Nov. 8, voters will cast their pick for the Presidential Election. Many students over the age of 18 will take part in voting. The League of Women Voters has visited AP Government and Politics classes to inform seniors on the importance of voting.

  1. Thanksgiving

Gravy, cranberry sauce, stuffing, potatoes, pie, pumpkin, and last but not least…TURKEY! The half day on Nov. 23 marks the start of the celebrations. Whether your favorite Thanksgiving Thursday activity is going to the parade, watching football or preparing for Black Friday, the four and a half day break leaves plenty of time for you to enjoy your favorite fall activities with family and friends.

  1. Plenty of Days Off

If Thanksgiving break was too far into the month for you to be excited for then the Nov. 8 to Nov. 11 school recess is exactly what you need. Monday blues on Nov. 7 will not be so bad considering it’s the only day of school that week.
