Last night we had Pajama Jam aka Math and Reading night.
The spirit club performed
The Rhythm club and Singers (Steel drums/Xylophones) Performed and led a sing along
Book Fair was open
Santa came to pick up the coins for Veterans donation our students raised. (During our Veteran's Day program it is explained to the kids that some veterans are injured and will be in the hospital over the holidays. They raise money to buy presents for the Veterans. Then Santa comes to thank them for their hard work at Pajama Jam)
We have 3 rotations where parents and kids do something fun with reading and math (We had math bingo played with skittles as markers, and read a snowpeople come alive on Christmas Eve story and made marshmallow[size=78%] snowpeople in 2nd grade)[/size]
[size=78%]Well this woman started yelling at staff because Santa didn't bring free gifts for the kids. Didn't we know that if Santa comes the school is supposed to give things like bikes out to the kids? [/size]
Apparently another mom called to ask what type of gifts we would be giving to the kids and cursed out the person who answered the phone.
