In November we celebrated lots of birthdays; Grace, Archie, Austin, Cooper, Samantha, Sophia, James, Liam M., Miss Laura, and Miss Rachel’s!. Jaclyn and Devin were Miss Laura’s Star Students and made beautiful presentations! Thank you for your wonderful participation in our fall fundraiser. Thanks to your efforts we are able to have the enriching programs we bring into Happy Days all year. We hope you all enjoyed our Thanksgiving Concert and Feast last Wednesday. It seemed like a fun, festive morning was had by all! Our second Friday Night Babysitting is Friday, December 11th. We hope the parents who have signed up have a wonderful evening out and perhaps get some holiday shopping in!
This week Miss Laura will be conducting Parent/Teacher conferences. Date/time reminders were sent home but please give a call if you forget your appointment time. Please remember to be on time and that the conferences are scheduled every 15 minutes. We look forward to meeting with you! Miss Rachael’s conferences will be in January. Please sign up for an appointment time with her if you have not done so already. In December, our focus of study will be on gingerbread men, bells, reindeer, and Christmas. Each week we will continue to introduce a new letter of the week based on our theme. In the afternoons we will have Cookie Math (Math), S is for Santa (literacy), Christmas trees (science), and holidays (social studies).
Finnegan and Eliana’s moms will be joining us on Monday, December 7th for some special activities about Chanukah! We will sing, make a craft, hear a story, and have a special craft. We will be celebrating the winter season with the Ice Queen and Snow Princess from Frozen as they play games and entertain us on Thursday, December 17th. Parents are invited to join us that morning. We will also be having our annual Pajama Days on Tuesday, December 22nd and Wednesday, December 23rd as we watch some fun holiday movies and drink hot chocolate! More information will be coming home about those days shortly. School is closed from December 24th-January 1st.
Please remember to pack your child a complete change of clothes each day, including an extra pair of socks and shoes such as crocks. Label all jackets and clothes!
