It's the Most Wonderful/Busy Time of the Year!
I hope you are enjoying this holiday season. There is so much fun to be had and even more to be thankful for. I for one am thankful to have such a great group of students and families here at Zaharis. With all the excitement comes lots of busy times here in room 29. I wanted to highlight several of them for you.
First off, we are finishing our unit of study on Ancient Greece. We will be performing a Greek play as a whole sixth grade. The play will not be until the third quarter, however, tryouts will be on Wednesday, December 19th after school. A permission slip and more information on this will be sent home later this week.
Also, in culmination of our study of Greece, our class will be holding a classroom olympics. It will be on Thursday, December 20th in the afternoon. Students can bring a toga to put on during this time and will of course, need to wear tennis shoes. (Did you know the true Ancient Olympics were performed barefoot and nude? YIKES!) In ancient times after the events were over, there would be a feast and party. I will not send out a sign-up, but if you would like to send in a treat for afterwards, I know the athletes would appreciate it. ;-)
Finally, Friday, December 21st is the last day before break and early release at 11:45. Mrs. Bullard's class and ours are joining together for a combined, "Nacho Ordinary Holiday Party!" We will be watching, The Lightning Thief, since we will have just finished reading the book and enjoying a nacho bar. I have shared a link below where you can sign-up to bring in something, if you wish.
I hope your holiday break includes lots of fun, family time and also some much needed relaxation for all. I am truly blessed with an awesome class and such supportive parents! Thanks for all your support!
