Title One Cookies and Cocoa Family Learning Night at Randels

M-M-M.  Warm cocoa and delicious cookies help make winter more fun!  Randels Title One hosted a Cookies and Cocoa Family Learning Night!  Families had a chance to visit, make special keepsakes, sing along with the music, write a unique note and decorate and eat cookies as well as drink cocoa together.   Everyone ended up together in the gym having a terrific time, and then left with a book to read at home.  That’s the way to truly enjoy the season!

All Aboard at Randels

The Polar Express Book came to life in the fifth grade classrooms at Randels Elementary. Students were immersed in book through special readings, enjoying hot cocoa and cookies, and using their creativity to design their own hot cocoa mug! The eventful day was brought to a close by the pajama clad classes viewing the movie on the big screen.
