Gentle Reminder for Holiday Travel
I can't adequately express how appreciative I am to all of our families for their conscientiousness and extra care in being vigilant about monitoring their child's health!  This high level of attentiveness is especially important as we approach the holidays. I am confident that our staff and families will be diligent in maintaining the recommended CDC safety protocols, especially as we navigate our family celebrations amongst the threat of COVID. Please remember to reach out to Shelley or I if you have any doubt about your child's ability to return from break while keeping the safety of all in mind.

Playground Update 
Demolition of our old playground will beginning MONDAY, November 30.  The old equipment will be carefully removed so it can be sent to an organization based in Chicago, Kids Around the World (KATW), which will refurbish it.  
The new playground equipment is expected to arrive and installation to begin the week of 12/7.

Parish News

In the spirit of giving, let's come together as a preschool community and participate in the following wonderful parish service opportunities! 

The Advent Giving Tree
Every year we provide a parish wide opportunity to share the spirit of the Christmas season with families in need through our Advent Giving Trees. These trees will not only benefit several St. Francis families, but a number of organizations who work directly with people in need. Due to Covid-19, the Advent Giving Tree will look a little different this year. Instead of choosing an ornament from a tree, this year there will be three different ways to donate through our website. You may choose to: make a financial donation, choose a gift or choose a gift card from our Sign-Up Genius links.  
For more information, links to sign up geniuses, and drop off times
We, at St. Francis of Assisi, want to thank you of behalf of all our Community Organizations and Ministry Groups for helping to make someone's Christmas a little more special. 
Preschool can drop off donations on December 8th at both carpools 

November 13 - December 4
