Just a quick note… yesterday I read a story to the kids called The Crippled Lamb by Max Lucado. It is a really touching story that your child can tell you all about. The reason I am posting this is because many of them wanted me to read it again, however due to the craziness of Christmas and school events we won’t have time.
SO instead I said I would post the story title on the blog and maybe over the Christmas break they would be able to go to their library and find the book to read and share at home with their family.
PS… you can also find YouTube read aloud versions and cartoons BUT i think the storybook is the best way to experience the heart felt message with your child
We had a very busy but fun filled day today dressed in our best Ugliest Christmas Sweaters!
Congratulations to Eldrich who won the Primary prize for Ugliest Christmas Sweater!!! A Free Hot Lunch!! Woo Hoo!
We also got to decorate cookies as a special Christmas treat! Some of us ate them super quickly and some of us decided to take them home
At lunch time we had hot chocolate and then finished our day off by working on a special gift!
Note: At Christmas time I like to send home the students’ inside and PE shoes. This is for parents to check their child’s shoes as some of them need to be replaced because of growing feet! PE shoes will be sent home today, inside shoe will be sent home on Friday.
Tomorrow we will be having Paraliturgy at 11am and then singing Christmas Carols in the afternoon.
As we start our last week before Christmas break with a snow day I thought it might be a good time to send out some info for the week ahead….hoping that we do get to school this week
Hot Lunch on Wednesday is CANCELLED and postponed to January due to the unpredictable weather. Please make sure you pack a lunch for your child on Wednesday. I will try to send out another reminder.
I would also like to congratulate ALL the Kindergarten students for their AMAZING performance at the Christmas Concert! Woo Hoo Kindergarten English!
We continue to prepare for Christmas in our classroom not only with decorations and Christmas art work, but most importantly preparing for Jesus’ birth. We will continue to read different stories of the Nativity and discuss the importance of preparing our hearts for Jesus. We will also be participating in the Advent Paraliturgy on Tuesday with the school at 11am.
There will be a sign up sheet outside our classroom door in January for parents to sign up to come in and help with classroom activities. If you are interested please sign up after school ONLY as mornings can be a little busy
Don’t for get Friday Dec 16th we will be going to Mass. Please make sure your child has their school sweater.
With the snowy weather recess and lunch are the perfect time to have lots of snow play….so please have your child dressed appropriately for the weather. This includes boots, mittens or gloves, hats and snow jackets. Snow pants are not required but are recommended for those who really enjoy the snow We will only be putting on snow pants for lunch recess as morning recess is too short to get all our gear on.
Enjoy the snow day and please check the blog later this week for other announcements and information.
