IMPORTANT REMINDERS
nativity_scene.jpg
Christmas Clothing Reminder
 
As Christmas approaches, Eden rejoices in this joyous time of the year and enthusiastically celebrates and emphasizes the birth of Jesus Christ. Activities and symbols which compliment these are prominent in our classrooms while myths and symbols that compete with these, such as Santa Claus, elves, or reindeer, are not emphasized.

We ask that students refrain from wearing clothing with a focus on Santa or elves.

Recess and Cooler Weather
 
We will continue to go outside for recess in the cooler weather.  Please be sure that your child has the appropriate clothing - jacket, hat, gloves, scarf.
