Holiday Read Aloud


Happy Holidays Mitchell family!

With the holiday season here, we wanted to take this opportunity to spread some cheer and share a simple cookie recipe and our administrative team reading some holiday stories. Each administrator chose one of their favorite Holiday books to read to your family. These links will remain posted through the holiday season so that you may enjoy them at your pleasure. We hope that you will enjoy these holiday treats and that you and your family have a safe and happy Winter Break. Happy Holidays!
