Hello! Our school year is cruising right along! October went by in a flash and we are now entering November and the holiday season. Here are a few of our favorite things from the last few weeks:
Red Ribbon Week and Voting!
We celebrated Red Ribbon Week October 29 - Nov. 2. Each class created a Drug Free themed cape to hang outside of each classroom. We graphed our votes on several designs and made a Ninja Turtle themed cape! Our slogan was "Room 004 says YES to pizza and NO to drugs!" Each student created a pizza to go on our cape. Students also enjoyed dressing as their favorite super hero as we said NO to drugs! We also talked about elections and voting and held our own class election after reading Duck for President to decide if Farmer Brown or Duck would be the best person to run the farm.
Earlier last week we also celebrated Pumpkin Day! We had a few wonderful volunteers come in to help us be Pumpkin Scientists and explore pumpkins first hand. We also had a pumpkin flavored taste test snack, build haunted houses for our ghosts, and graphed Autumn Mix candy! It was a very fun day!!
Our PTA hosted a wonderful Black Cat Ball on Friday, Oct. 26! It was a great time for students, staff, and families to come together to laugh, mingle, and dance. We had 9 students from our class attend!! We were SO excited to see each other outside of the classroom!
