Upper School students will form the annual “Turkey Train” during a special all-school Thanksgiving assembly on Monday, November 21. Beginning at 8:15 a.m., they will form a line stretching from one end of the campus to another, passing frozen turkeys, hand over hand, from student to student, to St. Louis Area Foodbank trucks waiting to receive the turkeys. They will be joined by Lower and Middle School students for an assembly and presentation of turkeys and canned goods to Foodbank representatives. Last year’s Turkey Train collected over 7,700 pounds of turkey and over 2,500 pounds of non-perishable food items. For more information on donations for the Turkey Train, click here. Since its inception in 2004, the MICDS Turkey Train has become one of the largest donations of food items to the St. Louis Foodbank at Thanksgiving. A reminder to all Upper School students: please plan to wear gloves for passing the turkeys!!
