For unto us a Child is born…… Isaiah 9:6
The Christmas season is upon us and the Staff and I wish you and your family a month full of wonder, joy and the spirituality that the miracle of our Savior’s birth brings. We make every effort at preschool to convey the true spirit of Christmas to the students. You may see some evidence of Santa, for he is the symbol of the spirit of giving. You may hear some reindeer songs, but we will emphasize the celebration of Christ’s birth, for this is the real reason Christians celebrate!
Scholastic book orders are due no later than Dec. 7th. This will allow them time to arrive before Christmas break. If you orders directly through the book club, please place your order on or before this date. The points we earn with each book purchased allows us to get new books for the classrooms. Scholastic also has educational items, games, books with tapes and puzzles we can use the points on. Many of our puzzle and listening center books with tapes have come from Scholastic.
Books are excellent gifts for young readers or any reader for that matter. This is a wonderful way to promote literacy at home. I know many families use our public libraries which is great but for a child to have a favorite book they can have read over and over to them and not have to return it is special. I have many of the books my own children loved and will give them to my grand children as they become readers. Many are out of print now and it will be nice
to pass them on.
Our Christmas Program is Monday, December 21st at 11:15 a.m. in Fellowship Hall. Please enter through the double glass doors by the Church Sanctuary.
I know it seems like our Christmas Break is longer than last year but it really isn’t. We are just getting out later. In previous years, we usually ended around the 20th. This year we are following the schedules for the Mad River Local School District and East Dayton Christian School, since most of our students have siblings attending these schools.
We have had some parents asking if it is too late to send their children 5 days for the rest of the year. Beginning in January, any (Pre-K) parent interested in signing their child up for the 5 day program is welcome to do so. Some parents don’t always want to start 5 days at the beginning of the year but find their child has matured enough to try it in the second half of the term. This is especially helpful for students going on to kindergarten in the fall. It allows students to experience attending five days that can make the transition to elementary school a little easier. If you are interested, please speak to your teacher to see if it is a good idea for your child. The tuition for five days is $260 per month.
Mark your calendars for:
* December 7th Scholastic book orders due
* December 21st Christmas Program 11:15 a.m.
parents arrive early 11:00a.m. Fellowship Hall
* December 24th Christmas Break no school
* January 7th classes resume Monday
HO! HO! HO!
