Polar Express Night

My new school has a holiday tradition of Polar Express night. The kids come in their pj's (even some of the parents come in pj's too!) and teachers and staff are in classrooms reading a holiday story. There are three sessions and the teachers read the same story three times. There are Christmas stories, Hanukkah stories, winter stories and even a few religious Christmas stories. After, there are cookies and milk in the cafeteria. It was So much fun - I think the kids get a kick out of seeing their teachers wearing their pj's in school! I read The Polar Express, my favorite holiday book, I usually do a big Polar Express even for kindergarten, but this school is SO big (10 kindergarten classes) that I couldn't do ti, so I did a scaled down version last night (although I did stop the fog machine, I was nervous that it might set off the fire alarm!)

Here is a picture of my two sons and I at the event, I even bought new Pj's for the occasion!
