Re: Holiday Breakfast, Saturday
Date: December 6, 2013
December is rolling along and there are only two more weeks before the Holiday break. Yesterday, students had the opportunity to do their holiday shopping thanks to the PTA and volunteers. Students and staff shopped for a variety of gifts which were displayed on the tables. As a gift was selected, the volunteers found the matching number in one of many crates and produced the same item which was pre-wrapped. Students came prepared with pre-printed labels and a plastic bag to hold all their goodies. There were scarves, picture frames, hand sanitizer, jewelry, hats, gloves, windshield cleaning cloths, magnets and the list goes on. A big thank you goes to everyone who made this shopping exposition possible for our students and staff. Ah yes, there were pet goodies on sale also by the sixth graders.
The second graders were off to the Coventry Community Center to meet up with their “Planting Pals” from Sweeney School in Willimantic and Burr Elementary School in Hartford as part of an EastConn grant. The students worked together on a project that will continue into the spring. They will meet again later in the year when they will travel to the shoreline to do some investigating of the plant and animal life. One student from Andover had never met another student who spoke Spanish. Well, he not only met such a student but that student taught him to say “my name is...” in Spanish. He was thrilled! After lunch, the students departed for their respective schools.
