Lots of fun activities take place in December at Moody Elementary; students can search for Elf on the Shelf and practice their song for our Winter Concert, "A Warm December Night." Our class will be performing on Tuesday, December 12th at 1:15 and 6:30 pm. Due to fire regulations, seating is limited for the evening concert time. Tickets will be going home for families.
On December 4th, in honour of National Cookie Day, we illustrated and wrote sentences about our favourite or ultimate cookie. Then students were invited to take one of Mrs. Elie's homemade cookies. This complimented our Science learning about our senses, particularly, taste.
On December 15th, our school is celebrating Sweater Day and students are invited to wear a sweater of their choice. Report cards will be available through myed on December 20th. Make sure you can access your myed account. If you have any questions, please contact the school office.
December 22nd, the last day of school before Winter Break, we will be having a comfy clothes/PJ day. There may even be a hot chocolate treat that day too.
There are other special celebrations in December too...
For many Christians, the season of Advent began on Sunday, December 3rd.
Hanukkah(Chanukah) begins on December 7th and continues until December 15th
