Each day in December, someone gets to open a gift from under our tree. Each present contains a new book for our classroom. Opening the parcel to find out what our new book is is a definite highlight each day.
Our school community contains some of the most generous people I know. Year after year, they give towards all of the charities and projects the school sponsors. Thank you, Westmount!
All of the classes in the school participated in Operation Christmas Child, so when the time came to deliver the boxes to the waiting ambulance for transport, all the students chipped in to get them there.
This fall our school has a Generosity Club. The club has done a variety of great projects but this month they have been working on filling shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child. Everyone helped to load the boxes for transport.
This Christmas we received gifts from two wonderful teachers. Mrs. Marrinan, who teaches in Brisbane, sent us a beautiful electronic advent calendar and Mrs. Knee from New Hampshire sent us an Elephant and Piggie book. These books are the hands-down favourites in our classroom. Some of the students helped to say “thank you” in this video.
