Our class enjoyed games, stories, crafts, cookie decorating, and singing all morning long. Below are some pictures of some of our students enjoying the activities planned by the High School students.

As we head into the Friday before break, I want to take a moment to wish you all a very happy holiday. It has truly been a pleasure working with your children over these past few months.

We had a great time on our field trip last Thursday to the Whitaker Science Center in Harrisburg. There were so we many awesome hands on activities that your children explored throughout the day, some of the class favorites were the Lego building room, rock climbing, and car races. We also enjoyed an awesome IMAX movie about outer space and the steps NASA is taking to getting Americans to Mars. Below are a few picture of some of our students having a great time!
