Each November, Breckenridge Independent School District hosts special Thanksgiving lunches at the campuses, inviting parents, grandparents and younger siblings to join their students.

The meal includes turkey and dressing, turkey gravy, whipped potatoes, green beans, roll and fruit salad. The meal will cost $5 per adult and $3.05 for each visiting child.

Breckenridge’s East Elementary had its Thanksgiving Lunch on Thursday, Nov. 14. In addition to the parents, grandparents and others who visited the school, some of the Breckenridge Fire Department firefighters also stopped by to enjoy lunch with some of the students.
