Deer Park Savors the Sweet Season with Gingerbread Traditions

 Deer Park Savors the Sweet Season with Gingerbread Traditions

Across the district, students, families and teachers savored the season with enduring gingerbread traditions.

In Paula Behrens’ family and consumer science class at Robert Frost, eighth-graders continue an annual tradition of exploring gingerbread making from scratch, learning dough manufacturing and piping. The students  baked their own gingerbread pieces, cut their own bases, and figured out how many batches of dough to make for the class, then finished with piping and decorating.

“I had never made gingerbread from scratch before, so I really enjoyed it,” said Mya Perkins. “I also learned which icing to use.”

At both JQA and May Moore, kindergartners were visited by family members for a festive morning of decorating gingerbread houses.

“It’s great to have all the families together, working with their young ones to enjoy the season,” said JQA teacher Joe Bottino.

“This is an all-time favorite holiday activity and has become one of the most anticipated holiday traditions in my classroom,” said May Moore teacher Tammy Cotrone. “The students and their families love building and decorating gingerbread houses. For us adults, it gives us a little bit of our childlike wonder back. Just because we’re grown up doesn’t mean we don’t still enjoy the ‘sweet’ things in life.”

 

 

Fun, Festive May Moore Sing-along Proves Charming

May Moore Sing-along

May Moore kicked off the winter break in style, holding its festive annual holiday sing-along. Staff and visiting family members got into the spirit of the season along with the students, dressing in festive apparel. Graced by the jovial presence of Santa and Mrs. Claus, the young students sang and danced to songs like “Snowman Jump,” “I Want to Be an Elf” and “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town”; one youngster even provided his own revised lyrics for “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” charming all in attendance.

Kindergartners in Tammy Cotrone’s class at May Moore recognized Veterans Day by creating a special poster, a heart made of red and blue paper hands that said, “We wanted to give you a ‘hand’ for serving our country.” Cotrone gifted the poster to local veterans to show her and her student’s appreciation for those who served.
