We have been very busy the last weeks – a field trip to hike a volcano in a cloud forest. How cool! I certainly didn’t get to do that on MY Grade 5 field trip! We decorated the classroom, planned a Christmas party for two of our local staff members, and put together two gift baskets full of food and presents for them. The kids also treated me to a wonderful surprise birthday party.
My students wrote this Christmas letter.
We thank God for a great 2017 and wish you a joy-filled Christmas and 2018!
