On the Monday before winter break, the children of P1 gathered together on a snowy Monday morning to celebrate Mrs. Jente and the impending arrival of her baby boy. Thanks to some sneaky staff members who pulled together the idea the week before, the children were able to share their favorite (or their parents’ favorite) baby book to start a pretty great collection for Jess and her baby. Below, some photos from the touching celebration.
The children took turns coming up to present Jess with a book (and there were plenty of extras for those who didn’t get a chance to bring one in). Every child had the chance to give, and all were engaged and excited to see what Baby Jente’s home library will contain!
This was also a good opportunity to celebrate Jess, who has brought so much calm, positive energy to the P1 classroom on a daily basis. She will be greatly missed while she is gone, but the children and staff are so happy for her, her husband, and her growing family! Good luck, Jess, and we can’t wait to meet your little one!
