Mrs Garcia's AM and PM kindergarten classes were so excited today to receive a gift from a Secret Santa. They were thrilled by the colorful wrappings, the candy canes, and most of all the cute handmade pillowcases that they each received. They will certainly be having sweet dreams all Christmas break! Thank you Secret Santa!!

Will the Grinch's heart grow?

Our librarian, Mrs Garcia, had a really fun lesson this week with her students about the book 'How the Grinch stole Christmas'. Earlier in the week, they read the book for class and then finished the week with a science experiment to see if they could make the Grinch's heart grow.
