Come take a ride on the Polar Express!
Beginning Friday, December 8th, students will be taking a ride on the Polar Express. This will take place during their Learning Commons time. The conductors (Mrs. Justice and Mrs. Spencer) will be reading the book, by Chris Van Allsburg, using an interactive Power Point. Students will be served hot chocolate as they make their way to the North Pole. One student from each group will be given the First Gift of Christmas (a bell). This is a favorite activity for students and staff!
It was exciting to broadcast live this morning with our brand new news equipment! Thanks to our successful Read-A-Thon last spring we were able to purchase new broadcasting equipment for our HNN News Room! Thank you to everyone who participated in the Read-A-Thon last year and made this possible. We cannot wait to see what this Springs Read-A-Ton will bring!
