Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Happy Epiphany! We celebrated them all this crazy short week. On Thursday, we were finally able to have our Christmas party. We started by reading The Christmas Story and moving the nativity pieces into the stable. The Three Kings also “started” their journey. We also got to open gifts from Ms. Torborg, our Advent Angel, and our 5th grade Buddy, play some Christmas theme games, and enjoy a special snack. On Friday, we celebrated Epiphany. We listened to the story Follow that Star and moved the 3 Kings to the stable. Father Brian also came to school to do a special “Epiphany Blessing”. As a school, we processed through the halls as Father marked each door of the school. Finally, on Friday afternoon, Ms. Torborg brought the BeeBots out for the first time. We enjoyed learning what coding is and practiced making our BeeBot move forward.
