Dear Parents,

Can you believe that mid-November! Thanksgiving is just around the corner and 2020 is coming to a very welcome close!

It’s starting to get cold outside and we want to keep your children warm and healthy. As long as the temperature is above freezing and it’s not raining, we will continue play outside, so please make sure to equip your child with a warm coat, hat and mittens

Here’s what we’re doing over the next few weeks before Winter Vacation:

Friday, November 20: Last Day for the Food Drive.
Donations go to Food for Others, a local organization that distributes food to families that are struggling. Let’s help someone have a memorable Holiday! Share what you can!

Tuesday, November 24: Thanksgiving Celebration – Normal day!
In past years, the children would prepare a feast and share amongst themselves, but this year we will be celebrating without sharing food. They will be making hats and watching a short video about Thanksgiving.

Tuesday, November 24: Student Progress Report.
Please check your child’s backpack for the Progress Report.

Wednesday – Friday, November 25– 27: School Closed – Thanksgiving Break
Enjoy your break with family and friends!

Monday, November 30: Christmas Concert
A parent from the Red Room and her daughter, Erin, will host a concert for the children with cello and violin music.

Wednesday, December 2: Little Teacher’s Evening with mom
A special night when you come to school with your child. More information will follow.

Thursday, December 17:  Children’s Holiday Craft!
The children will enjoy craft-making.

Friday, December 18:  Pajama Day and Movie with Hot Chocolate!
Everyone, including teachers, is invited to wear pajamas to school on Pajama Day. Regular shoes should be worn, but the children can bring slippers to wear in the classroom. Each classroom will watch a short holiday video.

We hope that everyone has a wonderful Winter Holiday!  If your child will be out of school before or after Winter Vacation, please let us know; it really helps our planning. Our last day before break is Friday, December 18th, which will be a normal day with school closing at 4:30pm. School will reopen on Monday, January 4th, 2021.

Thank you,

Happy Holidays!
