Fun-Filled Festivities Kick-Off Winter Recess

Middle school Atoms enjoyed jamming in a ‘drumline’ on buckets during their festivities leading up to winter recess

From music and dancing, to a variety of station activities to even a friendly class competition of soccer it was certainly a day to remember. Oh, did we mention that it was also a pajama day, and teachers and staff sang their parody ‘Ten Days Before Break My Students Said to Me?!’
