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!
