Dear pre-k families,
Welcome back! I hope you have all enjoyed your Thanksgiving break and spending time together as a family. We will be having a lot of fun during the next 4 weeks until we break for Christmas. This week, we will focus on transitioning our classroom to Christmas. We will also be preparing for the upcoming Advent season. Advent is the 4 weeks that lead up to the birth of Jesus.
We will have a flex week this week and will use it to explore the books by Herve' Tullet: Press Here, Mix It Up, and Let's Play! These books have been favorites of our classes in the past, and we will be engaging in many story extensions throughout the week.
We will also begin practicing for the Christmas Program. The Christmas program will take place on Wednesday, December 19th at St. Patrick's Church in the evening. We will appear in the play along with the 8th grade class. Please let me know if your child will be unable to attend on that evening so that we can plan the parts.
Some upcoming events for OLM... This Saturday, December 1st, the OLM student council will be in the Merced City Christmas parade. This is a fun event that takes place on Main Street. Please attend with your family and cheer on the OLM float as it goes by. Sunday, December 2nd, please visit the Merced County Courthouse Museum. Open house is from 1:00-4:0pm. Admission is free and the OLM Christmas Choir will sing from 1:30-1:50pm in the old courtroom. This is a fun event and cookies are provided. Please visit the 3 OLM Christmas trees set up in the old courtroom.
If you have any questions, please contact me.
