On our last day before February break, we got our word on marching in our annual Vocabulary Parade. This year's theme was National Parks. We saw flora and fauna from all over the country, plus Ranges and Expeditions and Campers and Birdwatchers and more. Afterwards, we celebrated reading 57,606 chapters during our Snowball Slam with slushies.

Our students had a wonderful time yesterday marching around the block from and to the school. Our youngest students wore their Halloween costumes and our older students really embraced their tradition of wearing crazy hats.

Mrs. Bouffard's P2 art classes have been learning about the tradition of Mexican calaveras in the weeks leading up to Halloween and the Mexican holiday, Dia de los Muertos. Originally the skulls were clay casts, decorated to adorn the graves of relatives. In modern times, it can mean a clay cast or any artistic representation, including the popular edible sugar skulls.

Goodbye Wonderland, welcome to the Jungle. Some of our E2 students spent the morning working backstage on scenery for this year's production of The Jungle Book. Here they are repurposing scene panels to fit in with the jungle.
