The students at Alpine Crest Elementary are getting ready for the holiday season. This year on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, the first graders were joined by parents and volunteers for their annual “FriendsGiving” event.

This event ensures that all students get at least a taste of the Thanksgiving tradition.

WRCB’s John Martin spent time speaking with some of those students about what they were thankful for this time and year and what they are looking forward to this Christmas.
