Hampton Elementary School is ready for winter break! Students only have one virtual half-day to go.
There were many exciting things happening this week at Hampton in preparation for the break. The fourth-grade concert was Tuesday, December 19th. The fourth graders performed twice during the day and once in the evening.
“The Concert was amazing and I could understand the students. It was great,” said Mrs. Fletcher, one of the vocal music teachers.
Students sang a selection of winter-themed songs including “Winter Walk” and “Oh Hanukkah.”
Today, students and staff got to participate in pajama day. People came to school dressed in their winter pajamas.
“I loved pajamas day, my favorite thing about it was bringing a stuffie!” said a student.
Students also had winter parties. Most classes celebrated today, Thursday December 21st. Mrs. Rees’ class did “Minute to Win It” games. Minute to Win It games are games you try to win and you only have one minute to do it. There was also a treat or snack they got during the party. YUM!
“I'm so excited for the class party this week! It’s so fun being able to help plan the party, spend time with all the students, and get to know everyone better,” said Brooke L., one of the classroom coordinators for Mrs. Rees’s class.
The students will have a virtual half-day on December 22nd, and students will have several assignments to complete. Many students are planning to get up early and get their work done, so they can begin their winter break as soon as possible.
