Notes from the Preschool Room

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 4 we will celebrate St. Nicholas Day by filling each child’s shoe with goodies at naptime. Tuesday, December 15 from 5:30 - 6 p.m. we will have our annual holiday concert. The concert will take place in Basil 135 this year. On Saturday, December 19, 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 16 we will spend the morning 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 Tuesday, December 22. A sign-up sheet for the party will be posted later this month.

In our attempt to Go Green along with the rest of the St. John Fisher college campus, we have decided to start a gently used clothing and book swap. There will be a shelf in the hallway outside the office door for you to drop off/pick up your treasures!

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 Thursday, December 24 and reopen on Monday, January 4. I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday!
