|Mr. Berger & Dr. Carter rockin' the ugly sweaters!|
First of all, I'd like to personally thank all of the Westgate families who gave me gifts or cards this week. Whether it was manna gifts, baked goods, chocolates, or any other goodies, you made me feel very appreciated and cared for! Thanks again!
|Getting ready for the sing-along! Fun times as a school community!|

Our other grade levels have been experiencing music from winter traditions such as Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa. We discussed that many families in our community might celebrate one or more of these traditions, while others celebrate other traditions, such as Diwali and Ramadan throughout the year.
Classes played bells, Orff instruments, classroom percussion, including jingle bells, and soprano recorders. We also watched some fun videos and danced to the beat. Here's a link to a favorite from the week: Cray Cray Christmas
We had our annual sing-along Friday morning, and it was really fun! Many teachers, and Dr. Carter, came up on the stage to help lead the songs with me!
Have a wonderful and safe winter break! We'll be back to make more music on Tuesday, January 3rd, 2017.
Mr. Berger ./`
