Class Auction

Our class auction is quickly approaching. We are looking for gently used toys, games, school supplies, etc. to add to our auction. The students will be spending their mini economy money that they've worked all semester to earn. This is a great time to clean out your junk drawers and donate to a fun activity THIS FRIDAY, December 19th!

Hour of Code

This week students participated in the Hour of Code. Below are some programs they learned to code on. Many wanted to do more at home so I am attaching the links for you!

Angry Bird Coding Game: and/or Flappy Bird Create Your Own Game:


We have successfully raised $122.93 to buy our animal. My friend's company has also graciously agreed to match our donation amount so we will be giving $245.86 to buy both a sheep and a pig! Thank you for all your help in this season of giving! You can check out our project on!

Would you like to share about a tradition that your family has? We would love to hear from you! This could include photos, videos, clothing worn, food samples/photos, instruments/music, and much more! Email me if you would like to share and help us to learn about the diverse classroom we are a part of! Anyone is welcome!
