Christmas News

December 7, 2012

 

Dear Parents,

 

First, we’d like to thank parents for taking time out of their busy schedules to attend our observations and parent-teacher conferences in November.

 

The holidays are approaching fast and the children have been working hard, practicing songs to perform for you at our Christmas Concert! We will be performing the following songs: Feliz Navidad, Up On The Housetop, Chubby Little Snowman, The Twelve Days of Christmas, The Little Drummer Boy and We Wish You A Merry Christmas. The words to these songs are posted here, on this website (click on December 2012, under News Archives in the right hand navigation) and you are welcome to help your child with the words when they sing them at home.

 

You and your family are cordially invited to our Christmas Concert, 2012.

Time:           11:00am (Performance begins promptly)

Date:            Friday December 21st

 

Please note that on the day of the Christmas Concert, children will come to school at the normal time, but they will be dismissed at 12:00pm after the event. The school will then close for the holidays.

 

Please also note our important dates:

 

Friday December 21, 2012        Last day of school, 12:00pm dismissal

Wednesday January 2, 2012      First Day of School after the holidays

 

 

We wish all our families a Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year!

Chubby Little Snowman

December 7, 2012

A chubby little snowman,

Had a carrot nose,

Along came a bunny

What do you suppose?

That hungry little bunny

Looking for his lunch,

Ate the snowman's carrot nose

Nibble, nibble, crunch!

Song before Mealtimes

September 11, 2012

Some of your children may be singing this song at home. This is a song that Ms Catherine sings with our children before meal times to give thanks. 

 

 

Put your baby fingers together to soul; ring fingers, middle fingers, index fingers,

thumbs. Lower your palms and close your eyes, now we’re ready to begin. Ready? 1, 2, 3!

 

One soft pillow for my head;

Two warm blankets for my bed;

Three good food meals everyday.

Time for work and time for play.

 

Thank you for the love and care

I see around me everywhere.

 

Bon-Appétit!

Professional Development Days

June 13, 2012


Dear Parents,

I’m sure that it is as hard for you as it is for me to realize that the end of the school year is less than three weeks away.  The year seems to have just flown by.  It is my hope that your children have had a challenging and rewarding year to date. 

On the last Friday of the June, June 29th, the school will not provide daycare service due to the Year-end professional development. We will still be going to Wayland Sports on that morning, and we will dismissal there.

The next professional development day with no daycare service in the afternoon will be in November and again in February. We will confirm the dates when we get closer to the day.

If you have any questions feed free to talk to Miss Brenda.

 

Thank you

Miss Brenda, Miss Saba, Miss Catharine
