We did it! The 2nd bean jar has been filled and we are ready to party. This Thursday, February 3rd will be COZY CAVE DAY! Children can wear their PJs to school and can bring in a cozy blanket. The blanket will go over their desk so that it forms a little cave. Children can also bring in a head lamp/flashlight to put in their cave. The kids are thrilled and can't wait!
