Thanks for a wonderful first year!! This year our theme was Knowledge is Treasure. Treasure made me think of pirates, so I dressed as a pirate for any possible occasion, so most of the students thought the theme was pirates, resulting in many piratey gifts! Ha Ha. Students collected gold doubloons through a variety of methods, which counted towards a class total. The winning class was Mrs. Hamiltons class! They won an outside treasure hunt with the GPS units, that led to a pizza party where each student also got to choose a book to keep! It was a great time!!
