Kindergarten

December 17th-21st

This week, the children worked really hard to lead the school assembly with their Grade 6 Buddies! Thank you, parents, for practicing with them at home. They did an excellent job singing their song about joy to help the school prepare for the Third Week of Advent! We also had another very special visitor come to our classroom all the way from the North Pole. It was Chippy, one of St. Nick’s elves! All throughout the week, Chippy has been gifting the class with lots of new books and games for them to enjoy!
