Dear k/1 families,

Dear parents,

Unit of Inquiry – Where We Are In Place and Time:  Celebrations

This week students made crafts, projects, and writing about several fall, winter, and spring celebrations such as Thanksgiving, Valentine’s Day, Saint Patrick’s Day, Easter, and Earth Day.  Next week we will learn more about Las Fallas, a celebration from Valencia, Spain.

We recommend the following unit questions for continued discussion at home:

Why is this celebrated?

How is this celebrated?

Who celebrates this?

When is this celebrated?

Where is this celebrated?


-Please participate in our food drive to collect items to donate to the Missoula Food Bank.  The boxes are place in front of the classrooms.

-If you are interested in presenting or leading an activity about a world celebration such as one of the following, please contact your child’s teacher:
