A Note From Our Principal,
Thank you all for participating in our Thanksgiving activities last month. We enjoy opportunities to get to know you better and are grateful for the time we get to spend together! December will be another fun and busy month for our teachers and students as we have continue with our Holiday Giving activities and kick-off Winter Break Camp. We hope you can join us for our class holiday parties and parent/staff cocoa and coffee break. Happy Holidays to you and yours!
Our school has partnered with Legacy at Crystal Falls Assisted Living to provide items for their residents, in the hopes of bringing some Holiday Cheer. We have been given some suggested item that each resident has requested. These lists are hanging in the front lobby on our Christmas tree with the name of the resident and a few of their favorite items. Please return your wrapped gift to the front office. Be sure to write their name of your gift, so that we can make sure the gift gets to the right person.
In addition to the gifts our school age students will be visiting Legacy at Crystal Falls Assisted Living during Winter Break Camp. The children will be delivering the gifts, singing Christmas carols and brining notes of encouragement created by our students and teachers. Please place your donations in the box in the lobby no later than 12/18. Thank you!
Classroom Holiday Celebration
Cutting, pasting and coloring are important for fine motor skill development and our favorite way to work on these skills in the month of December is to make holiday decorations with our students. Our classroom celebrations will be held on December 15th at 3pm. We will be showcasing our student work, singing holidays song and cookie decorating. We hope you can join us, but if you cannot we will be sure to share plenty of photos on Links 2 Home!
Winter Break Camp
School is out but camp is IN! One of our favorite things about the season is the extra time we get to spend with our school age students. Our camp dates are December 20th-January 3rd. We are closed on Monday, December 25th and Monday, January 1st. Here’s a quick snapshot of the fun activities we have planned:
- Legacy at Crystal Falls Assisted Living field trip
- Snowball Fight
- STEM Science Project
- Ice Skating at Chaparral Ice
Let us know by 12/08 if your child will be attending!
Are you going out of town for the holidays? If so, please do not forget to send a vacation credit request to Alicia no later than December 8th.
