RUN, RUN, RUN – On Dec. 19, at Cape Christian Academy, the pre-kindergarten and kindergarten classes read “The Gingerbread Man.” After the story, a gingerbread man fell out of the book. On him there was a riddle and clues, so the children ran, ran, ran as fast as they could, following the clues. They couldn’t catch him then, but they’ll try again, maybe next year.

 BAKING – On Dec. 22, the students in the Cape Christian Academy pre-kindergarten class had a special visit from Elaine Wallace, who came to teach them about measuring, mixing and baking.
