Dear Families,
I wish you all a wonderful winter break. This evening Ron, Anton, and I are driving up to our cabin to enjoy four days of skiing. I am looking forward to some quiet time in the mountains.

I wish you all a peaceful break with your precious children!

This week our room was filled with the excitement of the post office each day. It has been so much fun to see the children working together as a community through our post office unit.

Thursday update:
The cost of postage today was:
kinders – 4 cents
first graders – 7 cents
express mail – 50 cents.

At snack time Ron came for a special visit to celebrate Hazel’s 7th birthday. Hazel is so very loving and patience that she even sat in the rocking chair while we all sang her Happy Birthday!

Then we had cooking and slingerland writing time. The kinders made delicious salads (that the first graders made a few weeks ago) with homemade dressing while the rest of the learners reviewed all of our slingerland letters.

I hope you will enjoy all of the lovely photos!

Colleen
