Christmas Break

Please Remember

When you come to either the school or the church during the school hours of 11 am-12 Noon or 3-4 pm,  please do NOT park in any numbered parking spots. We use these spots for carline.  Thank you!

Ho ho ho!  December Music classes will focus on Christmas favorites to get ready for the Family Sing-Along on December 12.  We will learn some popular carols and move our bodies with some holiday yoga!   We will also begin to explore various instruments and simple musical dynamics such as louder/softer and faster/slower.  I hope to see everyone at the Sing-Along...I've got my new Christmas pajamas ready to go!

During Children's Chapel our classes join Rev. Mary Kay, Rev. Will or Miss Maureen to pray, hear a Bible lesson and sing some fun songs.

In December, we are excited to welcome our families to our first Family Children's Chapel of the year.

The children are always very excited to share this special event with their families so we hope you can plan to be there!

News from the Directors
We start getting excited about Christmas early here at the preschool.  The teachers are already helping the children make gifts, the room parents are planning parties, Ms. Margie is playing Christmas music and has decorated the front desk area, POPS is busy planning the Sing Along...It is a very merry time here!  It is a blessing to be able to call this place our "work" place.  

As you are making your to do lists this Christmas season, keep in mind that some of the best "gifts" are not bought at a store and cost nothing but time.  Creating memories as a family can be the best gift of all!   We wish you a joyous Holiday Season.
