Journal Writing Project: Gobble all the way

Traditions are a huge part of any family. In the Lanesboro Burro family, we also have our traditions. Turkey bingo is an annual Thanksgiving tradition at Lanesboro High School. The entire school, Kindergarten through 12th grade, participates in this Thanksgiving festivity in hopes of winning prizes. Every student is given a bingo card and this is where all the fun begins.

The office ladies announce the bingo numbers over the loud speaker for the entire school to hear. The rules are simple. If you obtain a bingo, you win! However, there is a catch; you are obligated to run all the way up to the office while gobbling through the halls the whole way for everyone to hear. After that, the office ladies check the students’ card, and with a complete bingo, they receive a prize. The students usually begin this tradition playing with an hour left of the school day. The Kindergarten students are often paired up with older high school students for help with their cards. This is also a great school-wide bonding activity which meshes the elementary students with the high school students. Everyone is always silent as the numbers are read off in hopes that they will call their number to complete their bingo card. Every once in a while, the classes will be interrupted when the noise of gobbling rushes by their classrooms. This is when the office ladies will announce, “Clear your cards everyone!” and a huge sigh would let out throughout the entire school. Last year, a few of the senior boys got the opportunity to be the bingo number announcers. These seniors included Clay Olson, Luke Rogers, and Garrett Boggs. This was often done in a humorous manner with the senior boys cracking jokes or doing funny voices. Senior Luke Rogers said, “My favorite part of turkey bingo was calling the numbers over the intercom.” This year for turkey bingo, everyone is anxiously awaiting who will be chosen to have the privilege of reading off the numbers. Mrs. Schuneman, the teacher who brought this tradition to Lanesboro, really got into the Thanksgiving spirit last year by displaying her yearly turkey hat atop her head. I wonder what crazy article of clothing she’ll be wearing this year?!

All the students truly enjoy the excitement of this tradition, as many comments are made about how much fun it is. turkey bingo is a great school-wide community building tradition and will hopefully continue to be enjoyed for many more years to come in Lanesboro.
