Rochester International Academy is hosting its 8
th annual Thanksgiving celebration for the school’s students, families and community partners. “An American Celebration – Thanksgiving Dinner” will include a menu of all the traditional favorites, such as turkey, stuffing, cranberries, corn, and many desserts. A total of 50 turkeys were donated by the Commission on Jewish/Muslim Understanding, an initiative of the Jewish Federation of Greater Rochester and the Greater Rochester Council of Masajid.
The staff at Rochester International Academy provides many opportunities for their students and families to assist with their acclimation to the American culture. One way the school accomplishes this is by introducing the students and their families to the different American holidays. Thanksgiving gives the entire school family an opportunity to show how thankful they are for one another.
Rochester International Academy is designed to facilitate the cultural and academic transition of newly arrived English Language Learners through rigorous language instruction and interdisciplinary learning in collaboration with families and the community.
