Goff Social Studies Teacher Tim Galvin serving students at the Goff Thanksgiving Feast.

Howard L. Goff Middle School hosted its annual Thanksgiving Feast on Thursday in the school gym. The event was hosted by the MAP faculty and students with support form the 6th grade Jump Start program, Claire Beaulac’s Life Skills class, and Patty Dority-Kawczak’s Home & Careers class.

The menu included turkey, pulled pork, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, corn, rolls and a variety of desserts.

“I have always loved Thanksgiving and the feast was something I always looked forward to every school year,” said Social Studies Teacher Tim Galvin, who coordinates the event. “One of the core tenets of the MAP program is community service and giving back to your school. This event is one small way of fulfilling our goal and continuing traditions.”

Leftover food and other useable items were donated to the Rensselaer City Mission on behalf of Goff Middle School by MAP math teacher Chrissy Blake.
