First graders enjoying their cup of tea..

Students in the classroom of Jeanne Harvey at VPS, learned on the first day back to school that first grade is “my cup of tea.”  

To celebrate on the first day of school, the students sipped juice and milk and ate croissants while some of their parents had a spot of tea.

Mrs. Harvey told the students she is beginning to collect “fancy” teacups and she hopes to have enough by the end of the year for them to have another tea allowing them to use the cups rather than Styrofoam cups for it.

The students also learned how to put on their “best listening ears,” and the bathroom procedures.
