Tea at the Garmisch Ritz
- Mrs. D and her daughter provided the fourth grade with a wonderful, elegant full English Tea. We had Victoria sponge cake; tea cakes; mince pies; scones with jam and clotted cream; cucumber sandwiches; marmite sandwiches, meringues, and cookies -- and, of course, English tea. It was a fabulously delicous spread. A very special THANK YOU to Mrs. Dfor treating us to this wonderful afternoon tea. - pictures

Turkey TrotTurkey Trot -The Turkey Trot was a lot of fun. 3rd through 8th graders had to run two laps while K through 3rd graders had run one lap. However, a couple of Kindergarteners and 3rd Graders were unstoppable and decided to run a second lap. Thank you PTA and parents for your support with participation and snacks. - pictures
