Abe Stark Primary School (PS) 346 celebrated Spirit Week from December 14th-18th. Each day had a different focus ranging from illustrations of holiday decorations to Ugly Sweater/Holiday Shirt Day, Holiday Hat/Headwear Day, Polar Express/Pajamas Day and finishing off the week with a Gingerbread House Contest.
Each theme was held in conjunction with entertaining activities for children in the pre-k program up to fifth grade students. In addition, the Gingerbread House Contest proved to be so much fun that it was held throughout the entire month of December. (Some families purchased gingerbread kits, and others used household items to make DIY houses.)
Parents photographed their children playing in the snow; a creating holiday decorations while dressed in “ugly” festive sweaters and shirts, holiday headwear, and Polar Express pajamas. Some children posed in front of their Christmas Tree and stockings, while others showed off their projects by their Menorah or Kinara.
Holiday photographs and videos were share with teachers and were incorporated into a wonderful video by Ms. Karleen Baumann showcasing the week’s events.
