M-F 3’s

Once again, Thank You to all the parents that donated food or their time to our Thanksgiving feast. It was a great success and they were the cutest Native Americans.
Tis the season to be busy…..and busy our class will be as we learn the tale of the Gingerbread Man and his adventures. The children will be using their creative abilities by painting, cooking, and building. “Run, run as fast as you can” is the motto of the Gingerbread Man. Our motto will be “Fun, fun as much as we can”. Our shape this month is an oval and our special color is green. Here is the fun that is ahead for the children in December:
• Part of the fun is making a “secret gift” for our mommy and daddy. Your children have such giving natures and this is so much fun for them. We try to help them keep this a secret (so you may have to close your eyes if you are visiting our classroom). We also tell them they must find a special hiding place for their gift at home. Most of you will probably know the “secret” before you even open their gift.
• Ms. Brady and Ms. Etchebarren will visit our class in December and will be cooking with your children. There just might be a runaway gingerbread or two.
• We will be having our Holiday Party on Wednesday, December 18th. At this party, we will be building our Gingerbread houses. We will need an assortment of candy, pretzels, marshmallows, and icing. We will also be asking for a few healthy-type snacks to balance the sugar. Watch for the sign-up sheet. We encourage all parents to come to the party and help their child decorate their gingerbread house. This is a fun time for all. Please try to attend. If you can’t, try to have someone there to help your child.
• Friday, December 20th is the last day of school before Winter break. It is an early dismissal day. School is officially out at 11:30, however feel free to pick up your child anytime after 11:00. There will be no lunch or aftercare. School will resume on Monday, January 6th.
• Benchmark Holiday Shop will be open the week of December 9th.

We want to let you know what a joy it is to spend these busy days with your children. They are such a fun loving, kind and inquisitive group of children and we see them growing in such wonderous ways every day. We hope you have a wonderful and safe Winter Break! Thank you for all your support in 2019 and we look forward to a fabulous 2020.
Mrs. Hull and Ms. Brittney
