Holidays Around The World

On Thursday, our 1st graders will be participating in Holidays Around The World. Each 1st grade classroom is a different country. They will visit each country and learn about how other countries celebrate the holidays. Each country has their own special traditions and they will take something special from each room that represents a custom from that country. It will be a fantastic learning experience.

All Aboard For The Polar Express!

Friday is "Polar Express Day" The whole school will be celebrating the "Polar Express" by wearing their favorite pajamas and bring a pillow to watch the movie and drink some hot chocolate! Please have your child wear pajamas to school. Please have them wear their regular shoes for walking in and out of the building during arrival and dismissal. This is not an early release day. We will dismiss at regular time on Friday. They will be carrying lots of Christmas Goodies home and no peeking before Christmas!
