Caden's dad was a Mystery Reader on Wednesday! The kids loved the Christmas book! 

Roman is in the Spotlight this week! We really enjoyed his show and tell! 

Roman's mom was a Mystery Reader on Thursday! They loved the book titled: The Book With No Pictures! 

Our Door Decoration: 
The students voted for the 'theme'. They loved the idea of Santa in his sleigh flying over the town with all of his reindeer! I think they are the most precious reindeer ever! The students really enjoyed making winter pictures for the bottom of the door too. Be on the look out for the door decoration pictures on Facebook.
