Dear Parents,

HAPPY NEW YEAR! 

MAY YOUR NEW YEAR BE FILLED WITH MUCH PEACE, JOY, HEALTH AND HAPPINESS!


It is hard to believe a New Year is upon us.  The last few months of school have flown by. We look forward to a great New Year!  Once again, many thanks for the wonderful gifts we have received.  Our hearts are warmed more than words could express. 

December was filled with lots of holiday fun.  The children were just perfect as they performed for us during our holiday show. They continue to show off their talents and skills. I hope you have some lovely photos as we create memories and capture special moments.  As always, I am so proud of the children!  They are our "little stars."

January will bring lots more excitement, as we journey into winter and snow. We will be working on some very special projects to decorate our classroom and your homes. We will be preparing for Catholic Schools week.  As we celebrate Catholic Education the children will be making many special projects.  We take pride in all of the children's fabulous work. Please join us on Sunday, January 28 from 10:00am-12:30 pm in our classroom to see the magnificent display of your child's work.  We will be working hard to make our classroom and outside displays outstanding! 


SPECIAL PERSON CRAFT/ STORY:

We are so happy to have each "special person" share in this wonderful activity.  We are looking forward to a most memorable and happy time!  The children are so excited, as they look forward to each guest.  They have made a special present for our "special person" and they are anxiously waiting to share it with you!  Please remember all participants must be Virtus trained and Background checked. Please sign in at the front desk.  A special thank you to all who have participated.  The crafts were super!  The children really enjoyed your creativity!
