A NOTE FROM MS. NANCY AND MS. DEBI

November was an exciting month for the students. Thank you for all of the delicious food brought to our Thanksgiving Feasts. We had a great turn-out and enjoyed being able to see and talk to you. December is a very busy and short month for us. There will be opportunities for parent volunteers to help with crafts etc. If you are available, please let you child’s teacher know.

CHRISTMAS PARTY

We will be drawing names in the next few days for our gift exchange at our December 16th party. If you do not want your child to participate, please let us know as soon as possible. The gift should be between $12.00 -$15.00, wrapped and brought in by December 14th . It should have the recipient’s name and the child’s name giving the gift. If you have a sibling you want to participate in Santa giving him/her a present, please send the present in also by the 14th labeled with the child’s name and from Santa.

The Christmas party begins at 10:30 a.m. and ends at 11:45 a.m. Santa will visit and pass out the presents.  Please have your present brought in by Wednesday, December 14th . We continue working on colors, pincer grasp, matching, sorting, lacing, sharing, putting on and taking off shoes, etc.  Please remember to send potty training children in elastic waist pants that they can put on and take off themselves.
