Preparing for Advent and Christmas

In addition to rehearsing Christmas Carols, English Class pupils have been hard at work creating festive displays, artwork and murals for the hallway and classrooms. In the pictures above sixth graders are painting 3-dimensional snow that is half shaving cream and half white pvc glue.

English Class first graders made amazing Christmas baubles from circles cut from paper they had painted red and green. They lay the balls on the paper so as to create a sense of depth. Glamorous glitter frames set the Christmas balls off on the stairwell.  Working together with English Class fourth graders the first graders made accordian fan Christmas trees with painted tp roll trunks. Little pompom bearded elves populate the lovely forest. This has all been put in the corridor vitrine for everyone to admire.

Fourth graders worked industriously to cut and form a forest of white and green spruce trees to set off the wonderful carolers that first and second graders made.

Former English Class pupil, ninth grader Meeri, who has been working at our school for two weeks as part of her work experience, was an invaluable help getting decorations up. Thank you, Meeri!
