A quick look back…

.

…at our classroom party.

“Oh, what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh. Hey!”

Well, I don’t know about that, but we did have a lot of fun celebrating in room 304! The students did an amazing job of planning and enjoying our Christmas party! Some created colorful pages, while others played games. Everyone drank hot chocolate…and stirred up some slime! 

Parents, you went above and beyond in donating what we needed to make this celebration special! You also went above and beyond in the gifts you so generously gave and the notes that you and/or your son/daughter so thoughtfully wrote. Thanks again!

The Hudsonville Community benefitted…

…and we went bowling because of your generosity!

Excitement for the opportunity to help others grew quickly as the PE teachers announced that the PE CARES Food Drive would begin. Some students bought food items using their own money. Other students collected food items from their neighbors. Families worked together to gather food from their pantries or road trip to the local grocery stores. 

In the end, over 400 food items were collected by the students and families from our classroom. These donations were added to all of the food items gathered by the other classrooms in our school and were distributed by LOVE Inc.

Thank you for making this food drive a HUGE success! 🙂

Check out the slideshow of our bowling bash…

As you can see, it was a LOT of fun…thanks again! 🙂
