Annual Gingerbread House Day at Onondaga Road Elementary School

The Onondaga Road Elementary School Annual Gingerbread House Day took place on Friday, December 11. For the past four years the kindergarten team has invited one parent/family member of each kindergarten child to join them in a fun Gingerbread House making holiday event. 

The gym was set up with festive tables while holiday music was playing. This fun day gave families a great opportunity to spend quality time with their child making colorful gingerbread houses.  Families have loved this event and it grows bigger each year.

Check out this short video of the event click here.
