December 12th-16th

Good afternoon Kindergarten families,

This week, we had lots of fun with our new classroom friend Chippy! He brought us lots of new things like a nativity scene, markers and the best surprise, blackberries! We had a great day observing all the changes that happened the berries when we made jam and when we made butter with the cream! There was wonderful learning in the classroom and we hope you enjoyed the jam! Next week is a very busy week so please refer to the email we sent out on Monday.
