It Twas' a Festival of Lights

Kindergartners shared with us the history of “Las Posadas” (How Mexico Celebrates Christmas) and a brief History of Christmas in China as well as performed skits of “The Drummer Boy” and “Santa Clause is Coming to Town.”

First graders shared with us the history of Hanukkah and Kwanzaa by dancing to “Oh Hanukkah” and a Kwanzaa song. They ended their performance by singing  “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.”

In theme with our "Festival of Lights" students learned about Vincent Van Gogh's "Starry Night,” and his use of light when it comes to painting. Students painted their own rendition of Starry Night and shared with us their thoughts on Van Gogh. To see and hear what the students had to say watch the video below.
