Clay Santas and the Christmas Store

Just look at the terrific clay Santa ornaments we made at the Art Museum! Next week, after they have been fired, we’ll paint them so we can take them home for Christmas.


Today was also the annual Christmas Store. For 50 cents, the students could purchase new or gently used gifts for each of their family members. What a thrill for the students to be able to purchase their gifts themselves and to get them wrapped to take home for Christmas.


Operation Christmas Child

This week the shoe boxes that our school filled for Operation Christmas Child needed to be sent away. To help get the boxes out of the school and into the waiting transportation, all of the students made a human chain from the room they were stored to the waiting vehicle. I was away, but Mrs. Tolley knows we like to document what happens in our classroom, so she took this video for us.
