December 18, 2020


This week we finished decorating our gingerbread houses and making Christmas gifts for loved ones. In Art, we made starry night, holy night pictures and in Catechesis, we learned the Annunciation of Mary work. Of course, we also enjoyed singing Christmas songs with Mrs. Barbour in Music!

Thank you so much for being part of our ECDC family this semester. We have enjoyed getting to know your children and helping them discover the big world around them. Even though this year has been somewhat different, we have tried to keep the children's experiences as close to normal as possible. We are looking forward to next semester and continuing to make precious memories with them. Thank you for all the wonderful Christmas gifts, kind words, prayers, and support. Have a very blessed Christmas with your families.
