Grinch Day a success
In the words of Maple Kindergarten Principal Kelly Moran, not even a COVID-19 separation could stop the annual fun of Grinch Day, Dec. 16, from arriving.
Maple Kindergarten teachers, all teaching remotely since Dec. 7, planned hands-on projects for their students for a 2020 celebration of Dr. Seuss’ “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.”
“My heart grew on Grinch Day too because my smart cookie students used the hundreds chart to color the Grinch,” said teacher Jenny Maheu. “I am so proud of their hard work.”
Students in teacher Rebecca Klembara’s class, one of the district’s 100-percent Blue Model virtual classrooms for the 2020-2021 school year, had a successful Grinch Day integrating the theme into an art and writing project as well as a science experiment.
“The Grinch left us some notes, and we wrote what we could do to make him grin,” Ms. Klembara said. “Then we made his heart grow in a science experiment using a green balloon with baking soda and vinegar.”
