Farm to School

On Monday, Mrs. Schmidt from the Farm to School program cooked Sweet Potato Pies with us as part of our Kwanzaa unit. Here is the recipe in case you'd like to try them at home!

Personal Size Sweet Potato Pies


24 pre-made mini pie shells

Oil for pans

1 (12 oz) can yams or sweet potatoes

2 tablespoons cream cheese, softened

2 eggs

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground allspice

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup caramel sauce


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

2. Put the pre-made mini shells inside a greased 24 count mini muffin pan.

3. In a large bowl, add the yams, cream cheese, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, allspice, brown sugar and caramel sauce. Beat with a hand-held electric mixer until well combined. Dollop 2-3 tablespoons of the pie mixture into each shell. Bake until the custard sets, about 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.

Holidays Around the World & Snowshoeing Holiday Party!

Thank you to everyone that came and volunteered for our Holidays Around the World Celebration on Thursday! Check out the Adobe Voice video that Malia and August made (below). They made the entire video by themselves, no teacher help - GREAT job kids!

On Friday afternoon, the entire 2nd grade and Mr. Gregory's 4th grade class went on a snowshoeing adventure in the woods! We stopped in our outdoor classroom and Mrs. Hoffman read us a story. It was a beautiful day and we all had a blast!
