It’s a GINGERBREAD HOUSE Party!
I made a house of gingerbread
It was so sugary and sweet
It took me all day long to make.
But, it lasted just a week!
Monday I ate the ceiling,
Tuesday I ate the door,
Wednesday I ate the windows,
Friday I ate all 4 walls!
Saturday I ate the lawn,
Sunday I licked up all the crumbs.
My gingerbread house is gone!
If you haven’t guessed, it’s time for the Annual Gingerbread Ball and Gingerbread House Competition to benefit Fischer House!
The Harbor School classes are continuing with this annual tradition of building gingerbread houses to be judged and auctioned off at the Gingerbread Ball to raise money for the military soldiers and veterans.
The Gingerbread Ball is an annual benefit for the Fisher House Foundation which is a “501(c)3 not for profit organization, serving military, veterans and their families, providing a home away from home while receiving medical care at major military and VA Medical Centers of Excellence.”
Students enjoy this winter activity which showcases their creativity, imagination as well as fine motor skills and turn taking.
Some of the classes even made their own individual gingerbread houses with a small milk carton, graham crackers and lots of frosting and candies!
This years classes competing in the Gingerbread House competition are: Ms. Gepp, Mrs. Jecas, Ms. Palagonia, Mrs. Flemming, Mrs. Congo, Ms. Marvulli and Mrs. Markel. Each class starts off with the same gingerbread house kit and buys candy to decorate their houses. Some classes have a theme, while others just decorate a fun house.
