Winter Wonderland

As students and staff headed off for winter break, the Sprague PTO sent them on their way through a blustery wintry carnival decorated with snowflakes, snowmen, and a host of other winter displays in which students were invited to play themed games, make crafts and test their fine motor skills with the Reindeer Ring Toss and the Jingle Bell Toss. The staff engaged students earlier in the day with their musical talents through drumming and xylophone/bell playing.

Mrs. Binder’s kindergarten class and Mrs. Vani's second-grade class had fun getting ready for the break by building gingerbread houses. The graham cracker serves as a blank canvas for them to create the house they imagine. Read the PBS story on the history of gingerbread houses.
