I just finished watching the Las Posadas concert. I have always enjoyed this concert, and missed the excitement of that evening gathering this year! I was also totally blown away by the way students and staff came together to create a meaningful, worshipful concert this year. If you haven’t watched it yet, I hope you take some time to do so! Consider also asking your child if there were any “highlight” Advent skits this year. All are on Google Classroom and are enjoyable to watch.
Today the students exchanged secret Santa gifts. They loved it.
It was a big sharing day, as well. We had a huge zoom call with all of the fourth and fifth graders. Students shared their PSAs about water conservation and care with one another. Students recited their original poems (inspired by Langston Hughes) for one another. We are class full of great poets! I am seriously inspired by their enthusiasm for this project and I encourage you to ask your child about the poem they wrote.
Students also watched videos made to show what each mini-term elective was about this year.
It was a great day. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of you! I will see you in the new year.
