At Melville School, they are preparing for their annual Holiday Bash, which later gets changed to The Super Holiday Celebration at a committee meeting by a suggesting from Annabelle. In Mrs. Mitchell’s class, the students encounter various celebrations with all three December Holidays. During their Hanukkah celebration, two Jewish students brought in latkes to taste and the dreidel game to teach to the class. As the class learns about Kwanzaa, Annabelle hooks up with a Nigerian Student names Adele and they find out they have some things in common. As Annabelle pairs with Dexter for a Christmas writing assignment, she wasn’t crazy about her choice because he appears to be very silly. Even though they were on two different paths in their thought process, Annabelle bit the bullet because she knew it would be a short-lived experience. However, as they gave their presentation, Annabelle saw the silly, animated side come out of her and really enjoyed it.
