Merry Christmas Caroling!

We truly lucked out today with the weather and had a great time Christmas caroling in Elizabeth.  We started out at the nursing home and assisted living, and then headed to Hoskins.  Check out the photos below to see if you can tell where else we went!  Then we had a fun Christmas party after lunch. Thank you so very much for the sweet notes, cards, and gifts.  I so appreciate your thoughtfulness, and hope your child liked their gifts too! Wishing everyone the most wonderful of holidays.....see you in 2015!

Geronimo Stilton Novel Groups

The third graders have done an amazing job these last two weeks as we've broken up into 3 groups and read 3 Christmas novels by Geronimo Stilton.  Here are a few photos of my group working hard! Ask your third grader if they remember who the author of the Geronimo Stilton novels really is...
