Week of Festive Fun!

by Administrator 17. December 2012 09:34

First, I want to give a big thank you to everyone who voted in our Christmas Tree Contest.  I know it was not easy, each class used a lot of creativity.  The winning tree was the Lighted Tree in South America, our preschool classroom.  It was close, it came down to one vote!  The canned food and toys that made up the Infant room tree are being taken down so that all items can be donated to a local pantry.  Today, the staff are wearing their ugly Christmas sweaters, voting will begin this afternoon, don't forget your pocket change.  All the money collected through voting will be donated to the Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign.  We do these things in fun to pass on the spirit of the season, but also to give back to the community that we are a part of.  I hope everyone embraces the Season of Giving!  When it comes to these children in our care, we are their role models, and we want to pass on the ability to give to others.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

by Administrator 14. December 2012 08:51

Wow! What a week we have had!  Thank you to all of the families for allowing your child to take part in the Holiday program.  Last night we had over 150 people crowded into the community room to hear our little Angels sing their hearts out.  What a surprise for the kids that Santa took time out of his busy schedule to come and visit with them.  The staff did an amazing job working with the children, and preparing for our festivities.  Thank you all for the extra work that it took to make last night seem effortless.  I would also like to thank all of our visitors who took the time to vote in the classroom tree Making/Decorating contest.  I know the choice was not easy because all of the trees were so unique.

The Infant room has 9 of their 13 new cribs in place.  The rest should be in by the weekend Smile.  And I am pleased to announce on our journey to applying for QRS, I have just completed a grant which will buy $5000 worth of new equipment for the classrooms.  The grant budget will be handed off today, so I foresee lots of deliveries in the near future!  Stay tuned for more QRS updates.

Season of Giving

by Administrator 6. December 2012 11:39

I can't believe Christmas is less than 3 weeks away.  Our Holiday Program is Tuesday December 11th at 6:30, I can hear the children practicing their songs throughout the building.  They sound like a Choir of  Angels echoing through the halls.  The Pre-K class is having their Holiday family lunch today, with turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, green bean casserole and a roll and the children made a fruit salad for their parents.  This marks the end of their Food Unit.

Please remember with changing weather children need to have hats, coats and mittens.  We have outside time if the temperature is above 15 with the wind chill.  When it snows children need boots and snow pants or a spare pair of shoes and pants so they aren't sitting in cold wet clothes after outside time.  Also you should change out their spare clothes to something warmer if you haven't already.
