“You're off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, So... get on your way!”
― Oh, the Places You'll Go! by Dr. Seuss

Today was a very exciting but sad day! We got our last letters from our elf pen pals! We have LOVED writing to them and receiving letters back! After lunch today, we got a call from the main office saying that we received another package and it looked like it came from the North Pole. Well, sure enough, it was from the North Pole! We then got our own letters out of the package, which were covered in glitter, and couldn't wait to read them! We spent a lot of time this afternoon reading them and sharing them with our friends! The whole room was filled with excitement! Well, goodbye elf friends! We hope we can write to you again next year! We'll miss you SOOO much!
Room 117 has been busy writing back to our elf pen pals at the North Pole! We are just so excited to hear back from them! Most students have found out that they are on the "good" list and that elves are all ages: 350 years old, 1500 years old, 31 years, 8 years, and 100 years old! Wow! Most elves like to have a snowball fight, sing Christmas songs, play video games, and play with the reindeer. The reindeer that is every elf's favorite is Rudolph!
