Wow, it’s hard to believe it’s December! November flew by in the blink of an eye. It feels like just yesterday we were in summer camp mode and playing in the sprinklers.
December promises to be even busier than November. We have lots of activities and events planned.
The holidays remind us to be thankful for all our blessings and to be giving to those less fortunate. We are hosting a Pajama Drive to benefit Pajama Program from December 1-18th. We will have a school wide Pajama Day on the 18th. To encourage your child’s sense of giving, include them in picking out a pair of pajamas and a book for a child who may not have warm, snuggly ones at home.
To give to those close to us, the children are having a Mitten Exchange on Wednesday, December 2. Please send in your child with an appropriate size pair of mittens for their age group, boys bring in boys, girls bring in girls.
Themes for December include, Holidays Around The World and Weather. The children will be learning how different areas of the world celebrate holidays. They will be talking about weather and the changes we will see heading in to Winter, including cool things like icicles and snow! Our music theme this month is string instruments.
On December 4 we will be having an Ugly Sweater Party! Please send your child in the ugliest sweater you can find or create. Teachers will also be dressed to impress. Parents will be asked to vote for the Ugliest creation. And Parents- please join us for coffee and breakfast Friday morning- feel free to wear your ugly sweater too and be entered to win a Wawa gift card!
Our annual Holiday Show is Tuesday, December 15th. Robins, Owls and Eagles will perform a medley of holiday songs to delight family and friends. Show starts at 7PM. Please limit guests to maximum of 4.
The Hummingbirds class will be taping a Holiday Video on Wednesday, December 16th. They will be singing a holiday song to debut on our YouTube Channel.
