It was party time before school lets out for the holidays. The halls have so many interesting decorations. Celebrating 200 years for the state of Indiana.
Lots of encouraging messages for the children. Kids will learn many social skills in their daily school lives. Hopefully skills that help them throughout their lives.
The murals are just the best, showing the history of our state.
It's always very clean in the hallways. The class rooms are also.
My daughter Mrs. H...unwrapping some gifts from the children. Bless their hearts, they are all so excited for her . It's good to see the joy on the children's faces. Some made homemade gifts and ornaments. One boy wrote a song and wrapped it. Some made special cards. The loving kindness touches your heart.
This is the class lined up to perform for their parents and guest.
Each child recites a couple lines from ," Twas The Night Before Christmas " They do so well , it's fun to watch them .
This is some of the delicious items the parents make and bring in for the party breakfast . It's casseroles, bacon, biscuits fruits, muffins, and cinnamon rolls. There's milk and juice also. This year it wasn't milk and cereal, as I have seen many times. I think most kids eat cereal for breakfast, so these types of food items are a treat. Less sugar. :):)
The very pretty and young mommies. They look too young to have a child in the 5th grade. It is so sweet of them to make and help with the breakfast.
My daughter makes up a bag of goodies for the children. At this time of year, some can have chapped lips. She got them all some chapsticks. This young fellow traded with the girl next to him and realized the girls got a colored chapstick. I took this picture of him so he could see....he wiped some off and then said, "I am fabulous, so this will do. " You gotta love his attitude. No one said mean things and he didn't seem upset...so all's well. This is a very good class. I am looking forward to seeing them again at the end of the year class picnic. I wish them and their families the best Christmas ever.
Hope all of you are ready for your holidays . It is a wee bit warmer here now. Enjoy your day. XO
