Week in Review

It’s been a cold and rainy week outside of the Matthews Library, but luckily we’ve had some fun indoor activities this week!

Last Friday we had our high school raffle winner’s lunch. Emily and three friends enjoyed homemade mac and cheese, brownies, and salad. Emily said she read “many, many, many” books for the raffle and her favorites include the Shadowhunter series by Cassandra Clare.

Monday was the annual Glass Knife Latke Throwdown and Holiday Party and Ms. Melinson read the appropriately titled The Latke Who Couldn’t Stop Screaming. This year there were no latkes, but lots of pasta including spaghetti and an Asian noodle dish with shrimp as well as a Dutch Spice Cake. Instead of latkes this year we had Sufganiyah (jelly donuts) pronounced soof-gonnie-oat. While latkes would probably be the best known fried treats at Hanukkah, this tasty treat is also traditional because it’s also fried and relates to the oil lamp story.

We had a Leadership Lunch on Wednesday where Monique presented a slideshow based on her trip to Finland and the Baltic states with the Sacramento Children’s Chorus.

On Thursday we had another lively meeting of the Political Puzzles club where Blake led a discussion on Trump’s cabinet nominations and he and Alexa talked about some hot button issues that other kids wanted to know more about.

And finally, Ms. Melinson unveiled this year’s Winter Craft: homemade cards!
