White Elephant Gift
Our class will be having a White Elephant Gift Exchange on Tuesday, December 22nd before we dismiss for the Christmas break. If students want to participate, they can bring a "recycled gift" (value of less than $5) that they would like to exchange. Gifts can be silly, or odd, but must be appropriate for school. Students are not required by any means to bring a white elephant gift and should not go out and buy a gift!
Some of the students wanted to share their reflections on this Angel tree project.
*Kayla: I thought it was really cool and nice how we were thinking of other people that don't get Christmas.
*Cori: I thought it was fun wrapping the presents for people who don't have that much.
*Emma S.: I thought that it was a lot of fun to help wrap the gifts for kids who don't get gifts for Christmas.
*Olivia: I thought that it was cool that our class donated money for presents for kids who might not get as much as us.
*Tucker: I think that its cool because there are kids that don't get presents for Christmas, so I wanted to help them.
*Dylan R.: I think it was very cool because the kids get presents but you don't get to see them open them.
*Jacie: It was fun because we got to experience what people don't have and see what they need. And, you get to experience what it feels like to be a giver.
I am so proud of the band for their wonderful first concert! What a beautiful gift music is! We set a goal for ourselves at the beginning of the semester to reach 10,000 minutes of documented practice as a group. We have well exceeded our goal by logging over 15,000 minutes of practice since September! Woo hoo! No wonder we are doing so well! Keep up the great work of signing those practice records and encouraging your student to practice at home. Even a few minutes every day can make a world of difference.
