Do you know how much work goes into keeping us safe and healthy? Mr. Adam Lesley does because it is his job at the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control. He told us how his job consists of many different responsibilities from food safety, animal safety, personal health and wellness and many more! Mr. Lesley enjoys many things in his spare time. He told us he has been to more than 50 concerts! He even had a picture with one of the members from his favorite band named, Yes! Some of his favorites include, pizza, the color blue, old T.V. shows and video games. He especially enjoys spending time with his wife Pam and children Scott and Megan. We enjoyed learning about your job Mr. Lesley! You inspired us to take an "in school" field trip to the lunch room to find out more about what our own school is doing to keep us safe! We found out our lunch room scored an A on their DHEC inspection! Way to go FES! We count on you to keep us healthy and safe! Thank you for helping us understand your job and your hobbies, Mr. Lesley.

Buenas Dias! This morning we met the most courageous woman, Mrs. Sandra! Michael invited his mom to come today as his special guest. Mrs. Sandra told us that she is orginally from Mexico. We asked her what her favorite Mexican holiday is and she told us all about November 20th which is Independence Day in Mexico. It also happens to be her son, Michael's birthday!
Mrs. Sandra spoke to us in English and Spanish today. We loved listening to her. Michael helped his mom by translating a few things for the class. Today we learned that Mrs. Sandra's family is very important to her. She loves her two sons Michael and Stuart very much. Together with her family, they enjoy being at home and going to the beach. What courage it took for Mrs. Sandra to come today and be interviewed by our class in her second language!

What an incredible day we had today! Our classroom was filled with the most precious warm fuzzy pajamas, robes and slippers! We even had some special visitors with the children today - their beloved stuffed animals! The class transformed into a cinema as we enjoyed our special time watching The Polar Express Movie and snacking on hot chocolate, candy canes, popcorn and cookies! This afternoon we read the book, The Polar Express so we were able to compare and contrast the book to the movie! It was truly a very special day at school today!

Our class hopes that you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. Before the break, the children had a family homework assignment. Each child was assigned a "Family Turkey" to create. The only guideline was that each member of their family was strongly encouraged to contribute to their turkey! The children and their families created beautiful masterpieces! Please take a look! We also made a Thanksgiving Friendship soup as a class. We all shared what we are thankful for and celebrated with a delicious soup that we cooked together in class. I hope that your Thanksgiving was a celebration of all you have to be thankful for. My family traveled to Knoxville, TN to spend the holiday with family. While we were there our son Noah got to meet Santa on a special train ride! Please enjoy our pictures!
