Mrs. Flomo’s kindergarten class had a visit from Private Adrian who is in the Marine Corp. The children have been corresponding with Private Adrian and were very happy that he came to Phillips to visit their classroom. We appreciate our military!

All first grade classes made gingerbread houses on Dec. 17th. What fun they had making their houses out of graham crackers, frosting and candy.
Congratulations to Ms. Flaherty’s class! They did not have any tardies the weekending Nov. 21st.
Mrs. Stone-Flomo’s class celebrated Thanksgiving by reading “Thanks for Thanksgiving” in class. They also made pilgrim hats to wear while reading. Happy Thanksgivings to all!
Each week Phillips has an attendance incentive for classrooms with no tardies . On Friday, those classes without any tardies for the week are placed in a basket to be drawn for a special lunch time with Ms. Fitzgerald. On November 14th Mrs. Rohweder’s class received this honor by having a fun time with Ms. Fitzgerald in the school gymnasium.
