Kindergarten teachers at Northside School instructed their students in many exciting and educational holiday activities during the week before the Holiday Recess.
On Monday the students fashioned "Grinch Hats" that they wore while listening to the story, "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" by Dr. Seuss.
On Tuesday all the teachers read "The Gingerbread Man Loose in the School" by Laura Murray which describes clues to help find the Gingerbread Man.
