This past week was a busy one at Vavenby Elementary School.

On Tuesday, Dec. 15, the Strong Start children did Christmas projects.

For the first one they chose a laminated construction paper tree, snowman, or gingerbread man and decorated them with pre-cut shapes.

For their second project the girls made stockings out of pre-cut construction paper. Leader Jody Phillips helped the children thread the needles with the yarn and then knot it. This was a good exercise in fine motor skills.

The fourth project was to make a star decoration out of popsicle sticks and glitter. Pipe cleaners were used to hang the stars on their Christmas tree at home.

Before leaving the children were given all of their projects, the cookies they had made, the book marks that had been made previously but had needed to be laminated, and the clay tree ornaments that they began earlier. Mrs. Jody added a treat from her. The girls had a wonderful time.

Primary students put on Christmas performance

There was a Christmas performance by the Primary students on Thursday, Dec. 17. They recited the poem “T’was the Night Before Christmas” and added actions.

One student wore a Santa hat, the rest had reindeer headbands on.

They did an excellent job. Their teacher, Michelle Farns, said that the children had worked hard on it. There was a large and appreciative audience.

After the performance the students took their parents into the classroom to show them the work done so far this school year.

On their last school day before the Christmas holidays the Primary students had a fun day and they all came dressed in their pyjamas.

They did Santa math and later each wrote a story about a girl building a snowman. They also played some games such as musical chairs and Grinch tag.

The Parents Advisory Committee (PAC) made a hot lunch. The students got mini pizzas, fruit kabobs, finger foods, Christmas cookies, and grape juice.

School will begin again on Jan. 4.

No crib and darts during holidays

The Vavenby crib and darts have stopped for the Christmas holidays. Crib will start up again on Tuesday, Jan. 5, and darts on Thursday, Dec. 7.


Both will be at the hall and will begin at 7 p.m. sharp. They both cost $3.
