This year at the school where I work, the administration put up a Christmas tree. The tree was decorated by the children attending the school with ornaments of the school mascot: the penguin.
The decorations brought in were home-made, factory-made, and kitchen-made (a few decorated cookies were brought in). Over time the tree filled up and was admired by all who passed the office.
Yesterday was the last day of school before the break and the tree was denuded. The oranments were given back to the children and the office lost its festive air. The children were not worried as they still felt festive – wearing pyjamas to school does encourage excitement. 🙂
In the morning we attended the school Sing-Along and sang holiday songs in French. The day was relaxed as the class wrote their weekly spelling test and then spent time catching up their work. At the end of the day, they were eager to go home and prepare for the festivities during the holidays.
The next two weeks will be spent relaxing at home (often in pyjamas!) with our families.
What are your plans for the next 2 weeks?
