Welcoming a New Friend

Our class welcomes a new student. His official first day will be on January 5th, but our friend stopped in for a visit in pajama day! 

Thanks for bringing a snack to share too!


Thank you for sending in so many non- perishable food items!

Our class delivered all of the food items to the Montpelier Food Pantry. Liz and Kristen we're thankful for the donations and showed first graders how to sort items and stock shelves. The food pantry is open to all Montpelier families. It is  located at Trinity Church- next to the library.

Day in the Dark

On December 22nd we recognized the winter solstice, and had our annual" Day in the Dark". We tried to block all the daylight, and used flashlights, headlMps and battery candles for light sources. We had some glow sticks too!
Our mystery readers, Amanda's grandparents,Jo-Jo and Boom-Boom, even read a story about cooperation using flashlights!

What a special way to welcome winter!
