On our last day of school before Christmas Break, students will enjoy a day that begins with our traditional pancake breakfast. Teachers become chefs and serve a scrumptious meal of pancakes, sausage, and juice. This tradition began during our first year and is always a hit among our students.
After breakfast, we will discuss and learn about the symbols of Christmas and enjoy an ornament making session led by Mrs. Tayloe and Mrs. Savage.
After lunch, Heyward Hall will be transformed into a global adventure as middle school students present information about chosen countries from around the world. Projects will include fabulous information about life in these countries and will highlight the Christmas celebrations and traditions held in each country. Other highlights include language translations and a sample of a cultural food.
Chapel will be held at a special time to accommodate our altered schedule and students will enjoy the usual format of fun with Mrs. Johnson. We will end our day with a Christmas Carol sing-a-long.
Stay tuned for details!
Captain's Days are scheduled periodically throughout the school year, usually in conjunction with holidays and/or forthcoming school breaks. During a Captain's Day, students are divided into groups with representatives from each grade level working as a team. Students aged 3-14 spend the day working together to accomplish tasks. Teachers create various stations as the students rotate through each - accomplishing the assigned task. For example, the Friday before the Super Bowl is usually a Captain's Day. Last year, we held the "Math Suer Bowl". Each station had some type of game or activity that incorporated different math skills with a football theme.
