Welcome to 4s!!
December seems to have come so fast! Our month will be short but busy. We’ll talk about our change in season from autumn to winter. We’ll look at the letters K, L and start on the letter M. We’ll also look at the numbers 9 and 10. And, of course, Christmas.
Our Bible words are God… sent his son, 1 John 4:10. Our stories center on Jesus and His birth.
Things to remember for December:
-Our weather is much colder. Please send your child with a heavy coat and appropriate shoes. If the playground is snowy or icy, we will not be utilizing the playground so boots are not necessary.
-Our book order is due December 1st. I realize that this is fast but I want to make sure that we receive our books before Christmas break. If any part of your order is a gift please let me know so that I may get it to you discreetly.
-Our $ave Around fundraiser made approximately $2000.00.
-We are planning on having our traditional Christmas Program this year! Yay! The program dates are Wednesday December 14th and Thursday December 15th. The program times are 9:30 for the Am classes and 1:00 for the PM classes. Please bring your child at the usual time and plan on going down to the Sanctuary to get a good seat. It will be posted which side of the the Sanctuary where our class will be performing. Our program will run 20 to 30 minutes. After the program we will have an opportunity for a group picture. You and your family are invited to join us for juice and cookies in the Big Room and are welcome to leave when you like.
-There is no school on Friday, December 16th. Our Christmas break runs December 19th through January 2nd. We resume school on January 3rd and 4th.
-Please check the calendar for birthday celebrations. You are welcome to bring an item for a Birthday snack. All snacks must be prepackaged. Please, no homemade snacks and no nuts. Please refer to our Handbook for ideas. We strive to be a nut-free facility. I will put a reminder in your child’s folder the week prior to your child’s celebration.
-We have many less fortunate in our community. Please remember them in your prayers and when you see donation bins in our local community.
-If you are in need, or know somebody who is need, the church stocks a little free pantry. Many items in the pantry are available 24/7. If you need more information the phone number for the church office is 208-362-1112.
-If your child is absent or you are just running late please email me at email@example.com. Our director is often in the classroom that she works in so she might not always be able to check the school email. You can text me as well at 208-870-5367. Just know that my phone is often on silent and I may not see it right away. You can always call the school phone as well, 208-362-5919.
