Hello Room 1A families! We wanted to share these memories with you! We had two wonderful Stone Soup days! Stone Soup is all about understanding the importance of sharing and community. We strive to teach our students to be selfless and kind. It’s all about coming together as a team to accomplish our goals! They loved helping to make the soup. They shredded chicken, cut celery and carrots, watched the soup cook and, the best part, enjoyed the soup for lunch! We hope you enjoy these pictures as much as we enjoyed taking them! Thank you to everyone who brought their Stone Soup items and the Tavey Family for donating the cutest Thanksgiving bowls!
Christmas Time is here!!! We are very excited for all that will happen over the three weeks we are together in December. Here are a few quick reminders about what we will be looking forward too.
Grandparent’s Day – December 11th – FULL DAY of PRESCHOOL
This year we aren’t able to celebrate our grandparents as we normally would be inviting them to visit us on campus but we will be working on a special surprise to share with them. Since our esteemed elders won’t be on campus to visit and take the children with them, we have opted to extend our day to a normal full day of preschool. Next year, Lord willing, we will return to the customary minimum day that permits grandparents to visit and take students as well as allow staff to setup for Happy Birthday Jesus the following day.
Happy Birthday Jesus! – Wednesday, December 9th & Thursday, December 10th
We will be celebrating Happy Birthday Jesus with student only school festivities this season. As always, each classroom has selected a couple of holiday songs to present but this year we will be sharing them by means of virtual performance. The children will perform their songs here at the preschool, we will record each classroom, and share their special Christmas jingles via the Preschool Blog.
It is our prayer that by this time next year, we will all be together again for our usual Saturday, full family, event.
PJs and Hot Cocoa Days – Thursday, December 17th & Friday, December 18th
One of our favorite Christmas traditions at preschool are our PJs and Hot Cocoa Days! We love getting cozy and watching a classic Christmas short such as How the Grinch Stole Christmas or Charlie Brown’s Christmas Special. Add a little popcorn, a warm cup of cocoa, and a class full of friends and it makes for a wonderful time together.
Preschool Christmas Chapel – Friday, December 18th
On our last day together prior to the Christmas break, we will celebrate the reason for the season in our traditional preschool Christmas chapel. The classes will each enjoy an individual chapel time with me, Mr. Tim.
Friday, December 18th – MINIMUM DAY – NOON DISMISSAL
Monday, December 21st through Monday, January 4th
From our preschool family to yours…
We wish you a bright and merry Christmas break, may your time away be blessed and full of seasonal family fun! We can’t wait to see everyone again in the New Year.
