Happy New Year!

So this post is a little late…but why not start the year with a look back at our adventures in December? December brought us our Multicultural/Market Day, a performance by the Sassy Tappers (complete with Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus) and a Winter dance!!

The art class studied Egypt for our part in the Multicultural day. We listened to traditional and modern Egyptian music, studied the landscape of Egypt and explored the art and pyramids of ancient Egypt! What did we do for the big day? We built our own pyramid, of course!!

Here are some pictures of our studies, the art we created and our own pyramid!
