Christmas Festivities, Part Two

Submitted by jane.wilkins on Fri, 12/17/2021 - 15:29

Today, a certain jolly person with a white beard and a red suit arrived shaking his jingle bells. Everyone had a chance to visit with Santa and no one cried this year!

Mrs. Wilkins read a funny Christmas story called Merry Christmas, Splat.  Splat the cat wonders if he's been good enough to deserve a really big present. To make sure, he offers some last minute help to his mom and messes up completely!

Next, played Christmas Bingo and then shared a yummy lunch from Cafe Rio together.

Pie Practice

Submitted by jane.wilkins on Tue, 11/23/2021 - 17:19

The rewards of pie-making are many, especially during the holidays. Making pies together not only offers quality bonding time, it’s also an educational experience. Baking pies teaches many important math and science concepts including measuring and the chemistry of different thickeners to make fillings.  Legacy students had the opportunity to make mini pies for our Thanksgiving potluck meal. Friday students made the pastry and Monday they made the fillings and baked them. We made pumpkin and apple pies. Crusaders, go and bake the world a better place!
