2017 in Review

2017 in Review

Last year I did a blog post that was 2016 in Review.  It was fun to look back over the year and was perfect because I don't blog as often as I used too.  So it keeps the blog up to date with a big end of the year review and let's me look back over the year's events all at once!

So here's to 2017!

January
In January we celebrated Nana's birthday!

 And the 100th day of school!  We all aged so well, haha!!


February
In February, we had lots of basketball!!

Valentine baking (I love Valentines!)





First graders hosted a living Wax Museum - students (and some teachers) dressed as famous people from history and lined the halls for the other grades to learn from them!


The last week of February and beginning of March is "Read Across America Week" and it's also Dr. Seuss' birthday!  We have Dr. Seuss Week and I love reading to classes and dressing up during this fun week!
