Our Lady of Mercy Preschool November Newsletter
During the month of November, the Preschool prepares for the annual Thanksgiving Feast. The students learn about the first Thanksgiving, then dress up as pilgrims and Indians to share a wonderful meal. The students also learn about giving thanks to God who abundantly blesses all of us. We are asking all families to donate $3.00 toward the feast. Thank you for your generous contribution.
Big Day for Pre-K curriculum will start again after the holidays. The emphasis will be on Advent when the students return from the Thanksgiving holiday.
