Thank you- Holidays Around the World

Thank you to all the parents who made today's Holidays Around the World celebration so special. For those of you who could not be a part of it, we made tree ornaments for Christmas, played the dreidel game and made menorahs for Hanukkah, made a Mkeka and learned a special dance for Kwanzaa , watercolored and made diyas out of playdoh for Diwali, and decorated hats to wear on New Years Eve! Very fun day learning about all the different cultures :)

Box Tops

Just a friendly reminder that we are always collecting box tops! Send them in to the class and then the class with the most box tops wins a pizza party at the end of the year!
