Submitted by larraine.nelson on Wed, 12/19/2012 - 12:20

Wednesday was a special day at Mt. Loafer!  Santa Claus made a special holiday appearance to wish the students a very Merry Christmas!  The students were singing around the Christmas tree when Santa came bounding in, dressed all in red from his head to his feet! The students had a wonderful time singing with the help of Mrs. Olsen and Mrs. Bradley!    Today was also the day to wear your ugliest sweater, and you can see by the picutres, some students went all out! 

HAPPY HOLIDAYS, MT. LOAFER!

Mt. Loafer had a spectacular Christmas performance presented by the fourth, fifth, and sixth grade classes.  Robin Brown, our wonderful music teacher, directed the concert.  She conducted the students singing Christmas songs, playing music on their recorders, and dancing with fluorescent pictures with a black light!  The students did a fantastic job and it helped us get ready for the holiday season!

Mt. Loafer Elementary students got a real treat, Friday, going to the Fifth Grade Wax Museum!  The fifth grade students researched famous people who have made a difference in history.  They wrote reports about the person they chose, collected artifacts that represented what that person stood for, and came dressed as that person.  The students and teachers went to a lot of work for this activity and we learned many fun facts about some pretty famous people!
