Delightful Days of Celebration

It is currently winter in our little corner of the world.

Fun In The Snow

While the weather outside has been very frightful (temperatures in the -30s celcius with the windchill), our days indoors have been positively delightful.  February has given us some wonderful reasons to celebrate.

On February 13, we had our Valentine's Day party. Our whole school came together for a joyous Valentine's Day brunch.  

We all wore red, pink or white on this day and we looked fabulous!

Happy Valentine's Day!

On Feburary 19, we celebrated Chinese New Year.  Ms. W. celebrates Chinese New Year and did a lovely presentation for the children.  Only a handful of our students knew that Ms. W. is Chinese.

Ms. W. showed us a tray of candied fruit that is eaten at Chinese New Year.

She had a beautiful garland of the Chinese zodiac animals and told the children which animal they were.

She read us a story about Chinese New Year.  She then invited the children to come up and see all of the Chinese New Year items she shared with us.

K. was dressed in a beautiful dress to celebrate the day.  She brought in some lucky money envelopes for her classmates and some decorations for the classroom.
