Libraries are often centers of cultural displays. ICSB’s library is no different. For the past few weeks this remarkable 3-D map of the Holy Lands created by a grade 9 student has been on display:

After American Thanksgiving ICSB starts to look rather Christmassy. Here are some signs from the high school side of the building that Christmas is near:
|In the cafeteria|
|On the way up to classrooms|
|Outside the library. Every year the high school students take a trip to visit the orphanage.|

Last week I shared with you home much I enjoy having my grade 6 helpers. I showed the picture of the soon to be Christmas tree. Although that tree did not work, they did make a tree out of construction paper. (Thank you mom for sending us green construction paper). They made the tree all by themselves and had a little help with the snowflakes. Without being asked they brought the candy for the elementary students. There have been many questions this week in elementary library about what the candy is for. I always tell the students "you will have to wait to find out" and I give them a choice of jelly or coconut when they leave.
They also made this "Merry Christmas" sign!
