At Williamsburg Northside, one of our favorite traditions is Family Potluck. Held each year just before the Thanksgiving break, it is a time to come together as students, teachers and parents to view student work, share a potluck meal, and celebrate the incredible learning community we have built together. Each family brings a dish or beverage to share of course, and our teachers often work with their students to prepare something special for the event: homemade lemonade, the recitation of a song or poem, or written messages of thanks and gratitude. The Parent Association, Class Parents and parent volunteers help with set up and clean up. Everyone enjoys the opportunity to talk, eat and laugh together, and no one leaves hungry!
