The Easter Bunny was seen today at our Easter Egg Hunt! The students had fun looking for the hidden eggs, eating their candy and, of course, finding the gold and silver eggs! Although we have had fun with the Easter Bunny, we have been sure to teach and celebrate the TRUE MEANING of Easter – JESUS! Each class has studied and learned about Holy Week and the 7th & 8th grades had the Passover Meal this morning.
TONIGHT is our Christmas Play! We are so excited and looking forward to helping others understand that Christmas isn’t about a guy named Felix Navidad, how grandma got run over by a reindeer or even the 40% shopping sales at Mondo-Mart, but about a baby named Jesus who came to save us ALL!
So, come join us tonight in the gymnasium at 6:30 P.M. and hear the TRUE meaning of Christmas! (The gym doors will open at 6:00 P.M.)
They did just what they said they would do – the 1st and 2nd grade classroom won! They were in 3rd place on Monday, 2nd place yesterday and 1st today. Does that mean they’ll be last tomorrow???
Today’s Penny Drive was very exciting! The students walked back and forth between the buckets to drop in their money hoping it would put their class in a good place for Friday. Strategies are definitely in play. Today’s winner is the Kindergarten class! As you can imagine, they were definitely excited about their win today. Who will win tomorrow???
It will be here before you know it – our annual 4th of July Picnic! Our students are helping to prepare these beautiful windows for our auction with the guidance of Katy Thomas. These are favorites and very “hot items” at our picnic!
Today, we had a fun celebration of Cinco de Mayo! We had 4 beautiful Hispanic ladies who volunteered and celebrated with us by showing and teaching us an authentic dance and shared in the fiesta. We enjoyed Mexican food, danced and the 8th graders hit the piñata! Este es mucho divertido!!! (It was a lot of fun!)
Today, we surprised Mrs. Neese with cookies & flowers for her birthday. We wanted to let her know we appreciate all she does & we love her. Thank you, Mrs. Neese, for all you do!
