Notes from the Preschool Room

Dear Parents,

December will be a very busy and exciting month for our class! The children will be learning about many different holidays and traditions. If you have a special family tradition that you'd like to share with our class, please feel free to contact me to set up a time for you to join us. We'd love to have you in for a visit!

On Friday, December 5th we will celebrate St. Nicholas Day by filling each child's shoe with goodies at naptime. Tuesday, December 9th from 5:30-6:00pm we will have our annual holiday concert and refreshments. On Saturday, December 13th, St. John Fisher College will be hosting a breakfast with Santa. Please see myself or Mrs. Ross if you would like more details. On Wednesday, December 17th we will spend the morning traveling to different classrooms sampling different Jewish foods such as jelly donuts and potato latkes in honor of Hanukah. We would love if you would be able to join us for our class Holiday Party on Friday, December 19th. A sign-up sheet for the party will be posted later this month.

With winter just around the corner we will need you to send a warm jacket, snow pants, mittens (not gloves), hats, and boots to school with your child. Please remember to check your child's extra clothes box to make sure that your child's clothes are the right size and weather appropriate. We would also appreciate if you would have your child practice dressing him/herself in their snow clothes. It takes a lot of time to get everybody ready and dressed. If the children can help in the dressing process we are able to get outside much quicker!

St. John Fisher Early Learning Center will be closed Wednesday, December 24th and reopen on Monday, January 5th. I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday!

Warmly,
Mrs. O
