Whipple Heights Winter Literacy/Art Night

IMG_2674A BIG THANK YOU to all who attended our Winter Literacy/Art Night on Thursday, February 25, 2016.  So many of our students and families were able to tour the building to observe the INCREDIBLE works of art created in Mrs. Mullane’s Art classes as well as engage in fun crafts based off of these works of art.  We had two very special visitors as well. The snow princess herself, Elsa and her best snow friend, Olaf!  Elsa read the story The Three Snow Bears by Jan Brett to our Whipple friends and then afterwards, Elsa and Olaf posed for pictures.  The evening capped off with a basket raffle where 5 of our students took home some exciting literacy/art baskets. Once again, another family fun night at Whipple.  As always, thank you for your continued support!
