Class Chapel

Our class will be singing a song at this week's chapel. The kids are VERY excited.


Chapel begins at 10:35 and we will be singing shortly after chapel begins. Chapel lasts about 20 minutes. If you are able to come we ask that you sit in the back of the church. Once chapel is over your child will be able to come see you, so if possible please stay around until the end. If you do not plan to attend make sure your child knows. This age child gets very sad if they don't have someone there for them, but if you have explained it before hand it makes a big difference. Thank you!


Please make sure your child dresses especially nice on this day. It will be recorded and posted on our school's website later that same day so you can watch it and share it with family and friends.

Thanksgiving Feast

We will be having a special kindergarten style Thanksgiving feast in our classroom on Thursday. We will make Pilgrim and Native American costumes on this day and then we'll sit down and have a feast together. Thank you to everyone who has already signed up to provide an item. You guys are so wonderful! We have everything signed up for!

Homework

Your child will be coming home with their red homework folder today. Please work through each of the day's activities and return the folder on Friday.
