Happy Holidays

Our last week before the winter break was very busy. 
Many special events happened throughout the school.

On Tuesday the students and teachers dressed in their Pajamas. 
They watched "Shrek the Halls" and enjoyed popcorn as a special treat.

At 3:00 p.m. the Kindergarten students packed up early to perform in the courtyard for many of our parents and grandparents.  The children sang "Jingle Bells", "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" and a Prince Edward version of "We Wish you a Merry Christmas".  
During the performance the students used bells and sang with actions.
During the 2nd performance on Wednesday afternoon, the students sang with confidence (much louder).
Thank you to all the parents who were able to join us.

Mrs. Taylor and Ms. Palmer's class visited Prince Edward's kitchen. 
They baked cookies and decorated Christmas Tree Cones

Tuesday afternoon, our Early Learners visited the auditorium to watch the Dress Rehearsal of the Winter Concert.  Our students enjoyed all of the acts, some of the favourites were the dancers, Bongo Buddies and the band.  Although our students did not perform in the Annual Winter Concert, it was nice to see some familiar faces as they watched their older siblings perform.   

Our students visited the auditorium for a 2nd time this week.  We attended a special assembly.  Some of the teachers encouraged the students to collect Aerobathon money by giving them incentives.  Three teachers got whipped cream pies thrown in the their faces, Ms. McGrory bleached her hair and best of all Mr. Romano was dressed like a Princess all day long.  These teachers followed through with their promises and showed dedication to our Prince Edward Family.

We hope everyone has a fun and safe winter break. 
Happy Holidays to you and your family.
