Our class did a WONDERFUL job at the Christmas program this week. We've been busy bees practicing whenever we had breaks - singing and working on lines in the classroom. Tuesday was a little hectic, but it was all pulled together despite a few technical difficulties backstage. I'm very proud of all the students' efforts and acting skills! Great work "Benjamin" and "Rachel" - lots of lines to learn and solos in songs.
I also told the students this week I was having an ultrasound to determine if Baby Maurer was a boy or a girl. The class has their guesses in a chart on the chalkboard. I shared with them some photos, but not yet the gender. That will be one of my planned surprises for next week. In the meantime, I have to be very careful when talking about the baby with pronouns!

Like this week, we should be very light on written HW, if any. We are mostly trying to get things wrapped up before we are on our 2 week glorious hiatus. :)
Friday 12/19, students may dress down in green/red for the Christmas break.
Have a wonderful weekend!
