December 2017

Dear Parents,

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! As we reflect on all the blessings God has given us during this time of year, we are especially grateful for you and your children. We treasure your precious children and rejoice in the special friendships we have formed with each of you.

November was an exciting month with learning to be thankful and enjoying a feast at our Thanksgiving parties. Thank you for making our parties so special.

During this month, we will be focusing on the story of Jesus’ birth and not on Santa Claus. Daily activities will include lighting a candle on the Advent wreath, placing a figurine on the Advent calendar, practicing our Christmas carols for our programs and making lots of fun Christmas crafts. Please ask your child about the activities we are doing this month and watch for special holiday projects coming home for you to display!
