I just wanted to thank everyone for their kindness and patience this time of year! Thank you to families who sent in food for our party- the students had a great time. Also, thank you to for the very thoughtful gifts, I am truly touched. I hope that everyone has a wonderful, exciting, restful and safe break. No matter how you celebrate, I hope it is filled with love and fun. See you on January 8th!
Today we talked about Kwanzaa and read a story about the holiday. It was nice to see the students making connections to the holidays that they celebrate and seeing common threads- spending time with family, sharing a meal, giving presents, thinking of others. One friend put it best when he said “They are all about Love!”.
If over the holidays anyone happens to have any empty 2L pop bottles, I would appreciate if you could send it in. We need 3 clear ones (preferable), but if we could use green ones too. Thanks so much!
Today our elf was making quite the mess in the classroom! He was busy making snow angels! Now we also have a gingerbread man on the loose! Our Gingerbread man tried to stay out of reach, students decided they would try to make a gingerbread house- like we read in the story the Gingerbread baby. Students used Makeado and lego to create a house for the gingerbread man, they are hoping we could lure him down!
In case you weren’t able to make it to the Sharing Assembly today. Here is a video of us practicing. I can not post a video of the actual concert footage because we performed with Mrs O’Coin’s class and Mrs Lebon’s class and some of those friends do not have consent to have their photos taken and posted. I hope you enjoy our song!
Great News! Our class came in second place for the food drive. We had 126 items, the first place class had 139, since we were so very close, we too will have a pizza party! On Friday (first break), students will receive 1 slice of Cheese pizza and a juice box. They will still need snacks and food for the 2nd break.
There has been some confusion at the school end about the assembly. Parents ARE welcome tomorrow to the assembly our class will be sharing a short song. The assembly is 1:50-3:30. So sorry for any confusion and hope to see you there!
We are going to have a little party on Friday to celebrate the holidays! If you are interested in sending in some treats we would appreciate it! Thanks for your on going support.
