The top five in each category were recognised. Although, we didn’t get to watch the live ceremony, we did find out the results and were thrilled to see so many of our blogging friends being recognised.

As a class, we were honoured to be shortlisted out of the many nominations in the best class blog different categories.  We were also very excited to see our classmate, Josie from Meaow @ Josie’s Blog nominated for the Best Student Blog.

  1. Congratulations Josie. It’s good to see someone young recognized for their efforts. Keep up the good work when you switch classes.

    Mrs. Murphy and Lonnie students,
    We hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Enjoy your long vacation coming up. When you return will all of you be going to a new class or will some of you stay with Mrs. Murphy?
    What is everyone wanting for Christmas?
    We get out of school on Wednesday Dec. 19th and return right after New Years.
    We’d love to have snow but often don’t get it at Christmas time. We got a big one a few years ago when it snowed on Christmas day.
    It’s hard to believe that it is summer where are you and that you’ll be going to the beach.
