This year, the 3rd grade students learned about different Christmas traditions celebrated around the world. Some of the countries the 3rd graders studied were; Germany, Mexico, Japan, holland and of course, America. Students had fun learning about various cultural traditions, while incorporating drama, dance and music in their Christmas program. A big thanks to the amazing 3rd graders who made the program a success. A big thanks also goes to mrs bird, who wrote and directed the program.
It is such a fun tradition to get the whole school together for the Christmas sing-along. Each grade prepares a song that they then sing for the rest of the school. This year we also had our choir sing three songs for us at the beginning. The school favorite is singing the 12 days of christmas because each grade has different verses we stand up for. Have a great rest of the week off!
