Dear Pre-K families,
Welcome back. We hope you had an enjoyable week off of school with your families. It's such a blessing to be back together with the children this week. I missed them very much.
This is a review week, we have been using our time to review our alpha friends as well as rhyming words, beginning sounds and blending words. We are also preparing for Advent that will begin next week. Advent is the time in which we prepare ourselves for the birth of Jesus. We have been making Advent wreaths so that we can count the 4 weeks before he comes. Thursday, we begin play practice and will be working with the 8th grade class to perform in the Christmas Program that will be on Wednesday, December 20th at St. Patrick's Church. I will give more information later as we receive parts.
Next week, on Friday, December 8th, we will present the school Mass with our 5th grade buddies. We will be celebrating the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. During the presentation of gifts, we would like our preschool class to present a wrapped toy to donate to children who might not have a Christmas gift. Please bring in a new wrapped toy and mark the outside for a boy or a girl and what age. We would like to have them in the class no later than Thursday, December 7th.
A few fun things going on this weekend...
Saturday December 2nd, is the Merced downtown Christmas parade. It begins at 3pm. Our school student council members will have a float with a nativity scene of the Holy Family. I will be walking with the float and hope to see you along the way.
Sunday December 3rd, our school Choir will be performing at the Merced County Courthouse Museum open house at 2:30. We have a presentation of three Christmas trees to commemorate our 90th anniversary celebration. It's a fun after noon to visit the museum and enjoy a cookie treat. This is a free event and I hope to see you there. Please see our school Facebook page for more information.
We thank you so much for your continued support through out the year.
