Early Childhood Center
ECC Families,

Good afternoon. I can't believe this week we will be celebrating Thanksgiving. Although we did not get to have our regular Thanksgiving Feast this year I do believe the students still enjoyed the special lunch and goodies on their feast day. I must admit I missed seeing all of the families gathered and the craziness of those couple of days. Thank you for making side dishes and desserts for the classes to share we appreciate everyone's participation. We hope you will enjoy the special class recipe books we put together to commemorate this year's feast. We are lucky to have a great office staff who spent many hours copying and binding all of the books Also apparent this week was the generosity of our families. Our blanket bin and table for the Bishop Sullivan Center were overflowing and had to be collected on several days. We are blessed to have such a wonderful community here at Presentation. This week many of our classrooms will be reviewing and talking about thankfulness and being grateful. Our center will be closed on Thursday and Friday. The staff, teachers and I wish all of our families a safe, healthy and blessed Thanksgiving.

God Bless,


Catherine M. Koob
Director

Center Closed for Thanksgiving
Our Center will be closed on Thursday, 11/26 and Friday, 11/27 for Thanksgiving break.
Adopt a Child with Catholic Charities
Again this year every class will be adopting a couple of children for Christmas. We have been doing our adopt a child event for several years. The students really enjoy placing the presents under our tree knowing they are going to boys and girls who really need them. All classes should have a list hanging up with items for their adopted children. Some classes have trees with ornaments to take or other creative ways to display their list. All items should be taken to the classrooms and then after our Christmas tree goes up each class will bring their gifts up and place them under the tree. If you have any questions about your class list please email your child's teacher.
Christmas Program
We will not be having our in person Christmas program this year. However don't stop practicing those Christmas songs because our students are still going to be singing for you. More details on dates coming soon!
