Second Graders ride Polar Express

Posted on December 22, 2017, in Academics

Edinboro Elementary students once again joined in on the magic of Christmas and rode the Polar Express Train ride Friday.

Inspired by Chris Van Allsburg’s children’s book that was later adapted into a feature film, the Polar Express is a story of a young boy’s trip to the North Pole.

Mimicking the book, Edinboro students wore their pajamas and enjoyed their trip to the North Pole, complete with hot chocolate and their very own sleigh bells. Students boarded the train, listened to a reading of The Polar Express and danced the “Hot Chocolate” dance after being greeted by their very own conductor. The students also signed an entire Christmas song.

This journey is part of the second grader’s big Polar Express unit done each year in December. This has been taking place for more than 10 years.
