Classroom Celebration!

Last Thursday, December 21, we had our culminating activity for our lesson "December Holidays". We had a guest who's a Jewish who talked about their religious tradition HANNUKAH; Ms. Olazo, a Catholic, presented on the Christian traidition ADVENT; and Ms. Burnette (a parent) shared on the African American cultural tradition KWANZAA. Afterwards, we integrated the real meaning and spirit of these December Holidays...love, giving and sharing.We exchanged gifts, fun games, shared food, lots of laughter. The pictures below will tell more of the story (click here for more photos)...

Felicidades! Congratulations! Hallelujah!

Maria,

I am sooooooo happy for you. This is what happens when hard work gets an opportunity to present itself to the right people. Enjoy your success.

I am convinced that you have been able to enjoy completing your projects this year because of the small class size and you do not have craziness interrupting the educational process for everyone . Of course I'm being a little facetious here. No really. Small class size, parental involvement, teacher dedication, and colleague support goes miles to helping the children. I commend you.

P.S. The pictures were great.
