We wish you and your family a very happy end of the year and a bright new year.

We are so pleased that the high school is now back with us on our campus. Please be patient as we figure out the car patterns for car line and for other things. We will all adjust. Being back is good and we know things will smooth out.

Congratulations to our band students who performed very well Wednesday evening. I am very proud of the hard work and the accomplishments of our band.

Congratulations as well to the wonderful performances by Mrs. Watson’s Primary children on Thursday. The children were wonderful.

A special thanks to the teachers, staff and students who made the three-day move of the high school possible. They worked so well and so fast!

See you on January 7th.

TK

Our musical performance was a HUGE success this week! Each child came dressed-to-impress in their lovely holiday attire, and participated in every song and poem merrily! Plus, we had a special visit from Santa Claus, who brought each one of us an extra-special treat. We concluded the excitement by enjoying gifts, hot coco, and cookies with our family members. A big thank you to everyone who joined us for this festive, holiday event! Happy holidays!

Initial Phase

What a fun week in P2. Students have been buzzing with excitement for break, but have remained focused and learning. On Thursday P2 was able to show off everything that Mrs. Watson has taught them in music class. Students looked so great dressed in their Christmas attire and had the most beautiful voices to match. It was truly a great show and we are so proud of our class! The P2 teachers hope that everyone is able to take time to rest, relax, and recharge for the New Year! Have a fun break with family and friends and we will see you back on Monday, January 7, 2019!!!

Phase one had a busy week with many holiday festivities. The students had holiday fun integrated into their language arts and math centers. Some students created a 3D shape tree, using 3D shapes as ornaments.
Phase One was very lucky to have Ms. Thompson teach us about how she celebrates Hanukkah. A few students were able to help light the Menorah. The students have also been busy creating a surprise for their families! We hope you enjoy the items they have worked so hard to create!
The Teddy Bear Brunch was a hit for all three rooms! The students had a blast eating their delicious brunch in their pajamas. Thank you for all of the donations that allowed us to have this fun event.
We hope you all have a relaxing break and we will see everyone back at school on Monday, January 7th!

Language Arts:

Cerezo:

All classes completed Hamlet the play last week and have worked very diligently on their final projects this week.

Scholastic and Honors classes had the arduous task of memorizing and reciting a soliloquy as well as performing an entire Act of the play.

Varsity classes have created paper puppets for each of the characters and, in groups, were assigned an act to perform with their puppets. They have enjoyed being able to use their imagination with creating their puppets and develop their scripts!

The students have worked tremendously hard this last week before break. They have written essays, practiced their Shakespearean skills, and have reviewed all of the content up to this week. This break is very well-deserved.

Ernst:

Happy Holidays!
