December 19-23

2011 is winding down fast, and we are in our last week of school for this year!!! This week will be a fun-filled, craft-filled week. We can't wait!

First things first, please don't forget about our Winter Program on Wednesday, December 21st at 6pm in the school cafeteria. This program includes our 2 preschool classes, and the students have been practicing for weeks! It is sure to be fun! Please have your child in their classroom about 10 minutes before 6 dressed nicely. Since we will be in the cafeteria on the stage, feel free to invite family and friends.

Our Winter Parties will be on Friday, December 23rd at 10:15. There will be a sign up sheet on our sign-in book for help! Please look it over and let us know what you can do to help. All students are welcome to attend!

This week for curriculum we will be talking about Winter, Sweden, and Christmas. We will also continue talking about our sense of touch, review the letters of the alphabet, and the numbers 1-10.

Thank you so much for sharing your children with us! They truly make us smile every day!!!

We will be singing 5 holiday songs, and will have cookies and juice afterward. This program is JUST the 2 preschool classes. Please feel free to bring grandparents, aunts and uncles, and anyone else who would like to watch. While we make no guarantees that every child will sing, we do promise it will be fun!
