At Van Houston Academy, we have a tradition of hosting a Thanksgiving Luncheon on the Friday before Thanksgiving Break.

It's a time where students and teachers sit down at one table and show their appreciation for one another.

We host a potluck, give speeches of thanks, and enjoy school wide games after the food is finished.

This year, we are proud to announce that parents will be joining our luncheon.

We are truly blessed by the strong support we've had from our parents this year. 

During the past PTA meeting on October 19th, Minh Le (mother of Brian Nguyen) rallied fellow parents by pledging $200 on stage. She asked everyone to donate as much as they could, and her contribution inspired others to follow her example.

Following her was Johnny Dang Sr. (father of Jacy and Johnny Dang Jr.) who pledged $500. 

Finally, Jeff Trinh (father of Isabella Trinh) promised to match all donations pledged that night. He ended up donating $3100.

"When I went to public school, I was very antisocial. I always kept to myself. Ever since I transferred, I’ve gained so much confidence and feel like I can talk to anyone. Everyone at VHA is so connected and talks to each other naturally. For once, I’m at a place where students can be themselves."

Elizabeth N., Sophomore and Class Vice President
