Dear Pre-K Families,
We are already into this busy month of December. We have a lot going on this month so I will try and get it on to one paper so we can all stay on the same page together. Please see December checklist on the attached page.
We have two alpha friends this month, last week we worked on Hattie Horse Hh and this week we will work on Jumping Jill Jj.
We are leaning about Advent. We have been making Advent wreaths and talking about waiting for Jesus during the 4 weeks of December. We do not have a preschool theme as Advent is the most important thing this month.
We will also be learning about St. Nicolas as his feast day is on Tuesday. The week after that, we will learn about Our Lady of Guadalupe.
We will be presenting Mass with our 5th grade reading buddies on Thursday, December 8th as we celebrate the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. Our class will be presenting toys as a gift during Mass. Please see the family envelope for information to donate a wrapped toy and indicate boy/girl and appropriate age. We would like to have the gifts before Thursday so the children can carry them up to the alter during mass. We are also asking for a donation of canned fruit to donate to the food drive. Families are always invited to attend Mass.
We will be in the Christmas program with the 8th graders on Wednesday, December 14th. We will have dress rehearsal on Tuesday, December 13th in the morning . We have costumes for the children so please dress them in comfortable clothes that we can just layer their costume right over. Each child has been assigned a part and assigned to an 8th grade buddy. We will continue to practice in the auditorium this week.
Please contact us if you have any questions.
Mrs. Veronica and Mrs. Romero
(I will have a hard copy of this post in your child's file box.)
