After a whirlwind of a day, topped off by a wonderful all-school sing along featuring our talented band and holiday singers, we're ready for break! The kids are sufficiently sugared up and will, no doubt, crash early tonight (you're welcome hahaha). I wanted to say thank you for the wonderful gifts and cards that I received today. Working with your children is such a wonderful and enriching experience that I look forward to each and every day. Wherever you go and whatever you do this holiday season, I wish you nothing but happiness and safety. So Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and the happiest of New Years to each and every one of you. I'll see you all in 2020!
There was a great showing of sportsmanship today as the staff and students took to the gym to battle it out for volleyball supremacy! The students put up a valiant effort but were not able to overcome the odds against them. I'm especially proud of how great the entire grade was as they cheered each other on! Now, there's just one more sleep before Christmas break and our class celebration!

This was the kind of day that you read about in ancient manuscripts. They may have called it a Teacher's Terrifying Trifecta. It isn't often that you find yourself heading into the last week of school before a long break with a full moon overhead, all on a Friday the thirteenth. Yet, all things considered, the kids were amazing today! I can't get over the amount of work that we accomplished. Biome projects have been completed and hung in the hallway, shoebox archaeology work is nearing its end, and I'm very excited to hang up the other work that they've finished around the room. Only one more week to go before a nice long break, but we'll make it a great one for sure! I hope everyone has a safe and happy weekend!

Today was a wonderful time at the theater. For many, it was the first time going to see a play while for others it was old hat. Amazing behavior aside, I was so impressed with the attention that everyone gave to the performers. We all walked away with our favorite stories and I look forward to discussing them more tomorrow!
