December News – Sparta
Our Parent Conferences and Observations went well. We hope that you enjoyed watching your child work in their classrooms! This month Mr. Chris taught us about Classical Music. We heard the music of Mozart, Bach and Beethoven. Also this month we heard, saw and played some very unique musical instruments.
We celebrated Thanksgiving with our annual luncheon. We wore our turkey hats and enjoyed a wonderful lunch together. Thank you to all who volunteered their time and donated the wonderful desserts.
Hanukkah came early this year and we all made a menorah to celebrate the season! We wish everyone a Happy Hanukkah!!
