Grade 1 students celebrated their annual Polar Express Day this week. After reading the classic Christmas story last week, students spent time doing various activities related to the book. The children created their own train sequence of the story, and on Monday, students played the Polar Express ticket game. Students also wrote about what they would like as the first gift of Christmas.

The children created their own train sequence of the story, and on Monday, students played the Polar Express ticket game. Students also wrote about what they would like as the first gift of Christmas. On Tuesday, students dressed in their cozy pajamas and carrying their golden train tickets, watched the movie and imagined their own trip on "Polar Express" complete with hot cocoa and snacks. The Christmas spirit was alive and well as everyone also enjoyed a special visit from the big guy himself, Santa.
