December 12 and December 13, we had two Christmas programs for families and friends. Each day we had a full audience, singing, smiling, and happy performing children, and proud teachers.
Thank you to all the families that made time to see the shows.
December 16 and December 19, we had our kids cookie parties. The children had a wonderful time decorating and EATING, the cookies. Thank you to the parents who brought in donations for the party.
The children enjoyed reading a Christmas themed book a day. It was a lot of fun to guess what was behind the mystery number.
And, of course Brook, our classroom Elf. She enjoyed observing the classroom and it was always interesting to hear the children discuss how she moves and what she tells Santa everynight, on her journey back to the North Pole.
