February was a very busy month at Alpine. We celebrated Groundhog Day, Valentine's Day, Presidents Day and Black History Month by reading books and doing colorings and handwritings. We also celebrated Chinese New Year and Mardi Gras by making special projects.
Picture day was a huge success and they all smiled for their pictures!
Mr. Chris came in to teach the children songs about love in honor of Valentine's Day and to introduce the children to Classical Music. The Wednesdays that Mr. Chris is not here, Ms. Chris, the town librarian comes in to read stories to our kindergarteners. The books that she reads are geared to the themes that we are working on.
