The Wizard is pointing to one of our favorite Back to School poems: "Mary Had Some Bubble Gum!" The Primary Family Information display stays up all year with the information changing as necessary. The jigsaw puzzle in the bottom right corner is a first week of school activity. Each student and teacher writes his name and decorates on puzzle piece. Extra pieces have words such as cooperation, friendship, honesty, and courtesy written on them. These words are brainstormed by the students as "words which hold us together as a Primary Family."
Each January we talk about Martin Luther King, Jr. and diversity. The Montgomery Bus Company bus has each adult and child of the Primary Family riding! The bus is surrounded by shields which describe what makes each of us special and what we'll each do to make the world a better place.
Titles of books read by students are written on the individual pieces of this spring display. We started with "color" teams for the rainbow and then added the blades of grass and other pieces. Our "Read Aloud Clouds" were added as we needed them!

A Circle of Prayers for First Eucharist
Every person in the school contributed a hand. Some hands have special prayers written on them. Later photographs of celebrants were added.
Growing in Faith
Every child created a flower. Photos of baptism were added first. Then photos of students "growing in faith" such as reading in mass, bringing up the gifts, or sharing their time, talent and treasure. After First Communion those photos are added. Photos changed as new photos were added.
Shakespeare's "Song of the Witches" is the poem shown here. The bubbles are students. Frogs, bats and the cat are faculty members!
