The gingerbread man visited the PK 4 classes.  After spending a day with the children, Mr. Chocolate (as he became known) ran away.  The children made "Missing" posters and hung them around the school.  The following day, Mr. Chocolate left clues for the children to follow that would lead them to his hiding place.  Mr. Chocolate was found safe and sound in the principal's office.  After running away again, the afternoon class found him in the teacher lounge.

After prayer, Mrs. Polega announced the Honor Roll for the first trimester. Ascension wishes  a Happy Thanksgiving to all.

The students in PK 3 through 1st grade climbed aboard the StoryBus.  Inside the bus, the children were able to interact with many hands-on exhibits based on the story The Little Red Hen.  The children picked fruits and vegetables, ground wheat into flour, played with farm animal puppets, baked bread and cooked in the kitchen, and fished in the pond.
The StoryBus is a project of the Dolores Kohl Education Foundation.
