Friday November 18th is our annual Thanksgiving Feast at school. All children are invited to this fun morning. Look for the sign-up sheet on the main parent board. Children and their parents will eat in their classrooms. We will gather in the hall at 11am to pray and thank God for this special time. We will finish around 12:30pm.
Thank you for participating in our vendor lunch fundraisers. We will continue Pizza Tuesdays and I am currently researching other choices for Fridays. I will let you know my findings.
Our next Parent Night Out is Friday December 2nd from 6pm-10pm. $30.00 for one child or $50.00 for 2 or more children. Children may come in their pajamas and bring a pillow and sleeping bag. We will provide dinner, a special craft, popcorn and a movie. It’s a great opportunity to go Christmas shopping or go out to dinner. Please sign up on the main parent board.
If you won an itunes gift card at the festival, please come see me to receive the “real” card. Thanks.
Classes are filling up. The Super Star class is full and the Busy Bee class has one opening left. There are only a couple spots in the little Ladybug class. If you would like to add a day to your child’s schedule, please let me know soon. Thanks.
Super Star Homework packets will begin in December. More details later.
The “kindergarten experience” is a new program for our Super Star children. Once a week they will visit kindergarten for a story, or activity. This will better prepare our Pre-K children for kindergarten. They will become acquainted with the structure and workings of a kindergarten classroom.
Mrs. Hogan has a wonderful reputation as an excellent kindergarten teacher. Her former students and their parents come back to tell us how easy and fun 1st grade is and that they love school.
The kindergarten experience will begin in January. There is no extra cost associated with this program. It is another way for the children to learn, be able to predict what will happen, and be excited to move into the kindergarten class.
School is closed for Thanksgiving on November 24-25.
Save the date- Wednesday December 14th ---Our annual Christmas Gathering at 6pm. More details next month.
Please continue to recycle empty water bottles and aluminum cans, it really helps!
Please continue to purchase scrip. Fill out an order form and enclose the payment. I place orders each Monday morning. There is a one week turnaround time.
Thank you for the opportunity to care for and teach your child. We understand that you have a choice in when choosing a school and we appreciate your business.
Have a blessed Joyful month,
