Well, it’s almost Christmas time!!!

The children and I will be very busy this month preparing for an exciting Christmas Program. The program will be Thursday, December 15 at 11:00 in the Sanctuary. Please come and watch your precious children present a special Christmas message in song. Don’t forget to bring grandparents and the whole family. Christmas parties will be held in each classroom following the program. I pray for each of you to have a Blessed Christmas, remembering our Savior’s birth. Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rest.” Luke 2:13-14

Wow! November has really flown by. Thank you God for the cool weather we’ve been having. It has been so beautiful. We have had a really good time in November. We have learned about Fall, playtime, things we are thankful for and turkeys. We have had a fun time making crafts, cooking and things for our Thanksgiving Feast. Our Thanksgiving Feast was wonderful it was so nice to see everyone there and to meet the grandparents. Thank you Doug Neumann and all of my wonderful parents for all the help that you give me. I am so thankful for all of you and your children. December is here. It is going to be one of those super months that will just fly by. We will be learning about Jesus, Angels and Christmas. We will be making some awesome crafts and help decorate the Jesse Tree. We will also learn about some songs and stories that celebrate the season.

Happy Holidays!! Wow…how time flies. In November, Mr. Turkey was abundant among Ms. Karrie’s friends; turkeys in every form, size, color, and texture. We even saw some little Indians. All to learn and celebrate being thankful. We ended the Thanksgiving month with a wonderful feast honoring and remembering the grand-people in our lives. Now for December!! The next two weeks will be FULL of more celebrating and decking the halls where we will be learning of the real Reason for the Season. Ms. Karrie’s class will be singing, cooking, decorating, and wrapping all in honor of Baby Jesus. We will also be parading in the Christmas Stroll. Can’t wait to see you there!! See you all back on January 4, 2006.

Ms. Leigh

I am amazed by how quickly November has come and gone. We had a wonderful month, and the Thanksgiving Feast was a success. Thank you all for helping make this day special. December will be a short month but one filled with many activities. Every Thursday we will add special decorations to the Jesse Tree. Please stop by to see how beautiful this tree will become over the next three weeks. Major James will visit the children and collect toys for the Toys for Tots program. Our month will begin with a unit on staying healthy. The last two weeks will focus on Christmas and the reason we celebrate this joyous season. Happy Birthday to Arianna who turns 4 on the 10th. We wish you joy and happiness throughout the next year.

Ms. Vicki

Well the holidays are upon us! We have been having a great time in our class. Everyone has been working so hard. Watching your children laugh and learn so much reminds me how fortunate I am to have a job I truly love. The month of December is sure to fly by, so no blinking please! We will introduce Itchy Inchworm, Jenny Jaguar, and Kathy Kangaroo. The glitter will soon begin to fly in our classroom as we get ourselves ready for the magic of Christmas. Our focus will be giving to others and the warm feelings we get from caring and giving. We will celebrate Jesus’ birthday before we part for Christmas break. More details to follow. I am thankful for the generous, caring parents I have this year.
Schedules are full and time is limited, but you have all been a real help to me. Your goodies, gifts, smiles, and friendship have truly been a blessing. Don’t forget to come and ride the float with us on December 3rd! Have a safe and happy holiday!

CHRISTMAS IS SPECIAL! This is the title of our unit of study for December. The purpose of this unit is to help children discover and experience the joy of Christmas, hear the Christmas story about Jesus’
birth, and learn about the importance of sharing with others. Concepts to be emphasized are “The Bible tells us about Jesus”; “At Christmas we celebrate Jesus’ birth”; “Mary and Joseph loved and cared for Baby Jesus”; “We can share the joy of Christmas by helping others”; “Christmas is a special time for families and friends to be together”. Our letters we will explore are “K”, “L” and “M”. Our number will be “9”. We’ll be making gingerbread boys (or girls) as our cooking project. Our Christmas party will be on December 15th. Details will be sent home in a note. I want to wish a very BLESSED AND MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!

Ms. Diane

The children were dressed up and “on a mission” in November! A wonderful church family donated some superhero and every day hero costumes. The children were very imaginative in dressing up and acting out various dramas. They repeatedly announced, “We’re on a mission!” It was great! I’m sure December will bring just as much excitement. The most important part of our December studies will be learning the true meaning of Christmas – the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. Every Thursday, we
will be putting a special ornament on our Jesse Tree. Please feel free to join us for the story, songs, and prayers. We will end our first semester with our Christmas Program and class party. Ms. Evelyn is
planning a wonderful musical celebration that will be held at 11:00 on December 15th. We will have our Christmas party immediately following the program in our classroom. I wish you all a very safe and blessed Christmas holiday! After the holidays, we will return to school on Wednesday, January 4th.

Ms. Neitsch

Gobble, Gobble, Gobble is the word for November; we sang many, many songs about Thanksgiving and learned about being thankful to God for the many blessing in our lives. We also made turkeys out of handprints, cut out hands, feet and they are so beautiful. We have been working on cutting and have been cutting most of our art projects. We collected canned food for the needy people in our community and had a most glorious feast.

In December we are looking forward to singing and smiling while we ride on the Grace Episcopal Float during our community’s Christmas Stroll. We will learn about how we celebrate the birth of Christ, making many wonderful Christmas Ornaments for the Jessie Tree. We will cook, play, sing, create and read all about the wonderful season and the miracle that we celebrate.

Thank you for sharing one of your most precious blessings with me, I enjoy your children so much and want you know that they too are a blessing in my life! Merry Christmas and may your holidays be as
special as you and safe.

Ms. Micki

After Thanksgiving we will march with much joy into the Christmas season. We will continue cutting, writing, coloring, and painting. We will be making Christmas ornaments and various other holiday crafts. We will learn about the Christian aspect of the holiday season as well. In this spirit, we will be participating in the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program. Happy birthday to Malena who turns 5 on December 14. Everyone have a safe and joyous holiday season.
