The group picture is our latest recipients of the “Character Award for Dependability”

The next picture is of Ian Tomblin who found “Irresponsible Ivan”. “Irresponsible Ivan” is one of Mrs. Warren’s “Character Development Children” who hadn’t been very responsible all year and had gone missing. Kindergartener Ian Tomblin was the student that finally found Ivan. Mrs. Warren was happy that Ian had been looking for him all year and found him “hanging in a tree”!

Our kindergarteners enjoyed living out a fairy tale earlier this week, after studying about all the parts of a fairy tale. Thanks to the many parents that transformed our gym into a real fairy tale for the Fairy Tale Ball!
