December has been an exciting month so far, full of fun activities. The children have been learning about the season of Winter and we are talking about Advent and preparing ourselves for Christmas to celebrate the birth of Jesus! They have been enjoying working on crafts for the Little Angel Store and gifts for their families. Remember to bring in your 6 craft items this coming week so they can be added to the Little Angel Store on Friday the 14th of December. The children will have a chance to shop the Little Angel Store for gifts for their family on Friday December 14.
We also have our Christmas Concert at Haysville West Middle School on Tuesday December 11 at 7:00. Doors open at 6:30. The preschool morning and afternoon classes will sing 4 short songs at the beginning of the program.
Also remember our canned food drive continues until December 14th and we are trying to reach a goal of 1,200 cans for the whole school. If possible, please bring in some canned food items for our drive this coming week.
The preschool classes will have their Christmas parties on Tuesday December 18th. We will also have the classes do their book exchange during the party. We will have a half day December 19th and students return from Christmas break January 3rd.
I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. I hope that everyone gets to spend some wonderful time with family and friends and has a blessed New Year!
In January we will be starting off with Walk in Sister's Shoes Campaign and there will Catholic Schools week the end of January. So we will come back full speed when we return from Christmas break!
