T December was a fun filled and exciting month here at Pocasset! Many crafts and holiday celebrations were experienced and there was even a visit from Mr. & Mrs. Claus! I really enjoyed the trips around the world students were taking as they learned about all the different ways countries celebrated the many different holidays.
T Thanks to Mr. Feinstein, the students will enjoy a reptile adventure from the Bwana the Iguana Reptile Show. Students will be able to see and touch a variety of reptiles including turtles, lizards and snakes!!
T As part of their music curriculum, Grades 3 and 4 observed a performance from the New Bedford Symphony Orchestra. This presentation included how animal’s movement synchronizes with the rhythms of the music world.
T Our Kindergarten friends and families enjoyed an afternoon of winter crafts. I heard lots of laughing and giggling going on in these rooms!
T Grade 1 held a fun winter activity. They made amazing Gingerbread houses that were fit for a King! There are many creative minds working in grade 1!!
T The whole school was invited over to the Tiverton High School. Students enjoyed a Holiday concert put on by the High School band and Chorus! What an experience for our students. Many were just as excited to ride the bus!
T Our December Jamboree celebrated all the good behaviors here at Pocasset School. A BIG Thank You to all the parents that volunteered to help out!!! You are the BEST!!
