Deck the Halls…Haigh 4th grade Halls!

Happy December!

I can’t believe we are now in December, the final month of the year.  2017 year is coming to an end, but first we must celebrate the Holidays and get in to spirit!

The 4th grade has decided to decorate our lockers with wrapping paper.  We are asking each child to cut to size, at home, and bring in a piece of wrapping paper they can tape to their locker, any design they choose!  The dimensions are 10 inches wide, 60 inches long.  If students want they can also add some ribbon or a bow, really any idea they have will be just fine!

Here are two photos from last year. Last year the room parents did all the work and chose the paper…which was very nice and helpful, but we thought it would be fun to have the students take ownership on this and have a variety of designs.

Thanks in advance for your cooperation and help in “Decking our 4th grade halls!”

Happy Friday!


We had a fun week in school.  From Zane bringing his pet bird to class;teaching us about him and letting us hold him, to building boats with Mrs. Dimitriou’s kindergarten class and racing them.  This was a culminating activity to the kindergarten’s Weather Unit they just completed.  They all had a great time!

Below are pictures of this week’s fun!  Ameena and her K partner were the winner’s of the boat racing, but they couldn’t beat mine and Mrs. Dimitriou’s invention, lol.
