A Note From Our Principal The holiday season is a time to celebrate community, diversity, and the universal joy of giving. Our students will be learning about traditions observed around the world by singing songs, making art, tasting seasonal treats, and so much more! We would love to celebrate and learn about your traditions. For our Winter celebration, we are super excited to have Mr. & Mrs. Claus join us for our Spaghetti and Meatball Brunch! We would love the our families to join us. We’ll be sending additional information in the coming weeks via Links 2 Home. As always, thank you for allowing us to teach and care for your children.

Holiday Giving Our annual holiday giving initiative is a way for students to spread cheer this holiday season while developing an appreciation for what they have, showing gratitude towards others, and seeing the positive impact of their actions. This year, we are collected for the  Gently Hugged organization. Last day for collections will be December 9th. Thank you for your generosity in helping others in need.
Book Fair Week  Winter Book Fair will be December 12th to December 16th. This is a short one and we our goal is to reach our goal of $2000. All money raised turns into Scholastic Book dollars which allows us to buy new books and academic activities for our classrooms. And it couldn’t come at a better time to help with your Holiday shopping. What a great gift!

The holidays are a wonderful time of year for many reasons. We enjoy spending this time with our students as we reflect on the past year, learn about different traditions, and give back to those in need. Our annual holiday giving initiative is a way for students to build the important foundation of generosity and compassion. Through this event, they develop an appreciation for what they have, show gratitude towards others, and see the positive impact of their actions. It brings a smile to our faces to see our students get so excited to lend a helping hand.

Below are just a few ways we’re helping our communities this season.

  1. Students will collect toys, art supplies, games, books and other gifts for children in need. These special items will be delivered to Toys for Tots, local shelters, and children’s hospitals.
  1. During Thanksgiving, many of our students collected nonperishable food items. They will continue their collections throughout December, tour the food banks, and learn about how their contributions will make a difference in their community.
  2. Students will help stock the shelves of local shelters by collecting essential winter accessories, such as coats, mittens, hats, and blankets.
  3. The gift of time is precious. Students will make cards and visit senior centers to spread holiday cheer. They will enjoy snacks with residents, make holiday decorations, read books, and sing carols.
  4. Students will show their appreciation for community helpers by delivering baked goods. They’ll measure and mix ingredients, roll the dough, place the baked goodies in boxes, and deliver them with handmade cards.
