Exciting Days for the Kindergartners and First Graders!

The kindergartners and first graders are studying bears and answering such questions as:
What color is a polar bear's skin? Why?; What does torpor mean?; What color is a Kermode bear? What kind of bear is it?; What does a panda bear spend twelve hours a day doing? 

The kindergartners and first graders heard exciting news last Friday. Their class won the
”Penny Wars” challenge presented to the whole school. The students collectively raised enough money to purchase a swing set, but, of all classes, the kindergarten/first grade class raised the most money. The two middle schoolers running the drive brought cupcakes to the kindergartners and first graders to celebrate their achievement. Here are the victory cupcakes (and please notice the bears decorating the walls)!
