Winter Break is Almost Here!

There's only 1 more day of school for most teachers before winter break begins! This year has gone by so fast already here. Today we're reading the History of Santa Claus in America in my US History classes before getting ready to wrap up with a Victorian-themed party tomorrow for the few students that will be in class.

I sincerely hope you had a great school year so far and have a relaxing and warm winter vacation!!
