Friday December 19

Hi everyone!
Yesterday we finished our project work about fairy tales and shared with our fifth grade buddies.  Here are some pictures:

Today was excitement and gifts...thank you for all of the generous gifts!  We did a little work, heard a sweet story, enjoyed a gym assembly, popcorn and a movie.
To quote Charles Dickens:
"And it was always said of him that he knew how to keep Christmas well..."
I wish a happy holiday to all of you...keep well!
See you 2015
