November 21 - Week 12

Happy Thanksgiving and Welcome Christmas!

Thank you so much for taking time from your busy schedules to enjoy the Thanksgiving Feast today with your children. We had so much fun preparing and hosting! We wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving next week with family and friends. Yes, we have preschool on Monday and Tuesday:)!

Can you believe that Christmas is right around the corner which means more fun and busy days at Unity Preschool celebrating one of our favorite times of year! We look forward to another special event on Tuesday, December 10 when we host our Christmas Celebration. With only a few weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas, we found ourselves in past years spending a lot of time "practicing" for a Christmas program enjoyed by families, but not necessarily enjoyed by the children. We decided that one of the best presents that you can give your child during this busy time of year is your presence so we would instead spend more time celebrating the magic of Christmas. One special guest (just one please due to space limitations) will be invited to help his/her child make a art project with the guidance of Ms. Laura (read her bio below) and enjoy some wonderful stories by Ms. Jane, our Storyteller. Look for invites in your child's backpack when we return after Thanksgiving Break.

December 1 is the first Sunday in Advent. We will talk about Advent in our next Chapel on Tuesday, December 3 along with our next Fruit of the Spirit: Patience (perfect for this time of year). Look for an Advent calendar in your child's folder next week. It has some fun activities that you can enjoy together during this beautiful season.

Scholastic Book Orders

Books are great Christmas gifts! Please check your child's folder for our Scholastic flyer that we sent home this week. Your orders help us purchase more books for our Preschool Library as well as Birthday, Christmas and End of Year books for your children. I will be finalizing our order on Monday so that we receive our Christmas books before the break. I have included a link below for the digital flyers for preschool students. Please place your on-line orders by Monday, November 25. Thanks in advance for your support.

Our Class Code: GXCK8

Color Day - Go RED

Our next Color Day is Thursday, December 12. Please wear Red.

Meet Ms. Laura - Art Coordinator

We are excited to welcome Ms. Laura Vaughn to Unity Preschool! Ms. Laura helps our Three's and Four's classes with special art activities once/month. Ms. Laura is a former elementary school teacher and now regularly subs at area preschools. She has two sons, ages 9 and 11. Ms. Laura loves her boys, crafting and organizing and her happy place is Charleston. Some of you will meet Ms. Laura at our Christmas Celebration in December.

Favorite Things Lists

Some of you have asked me for gift ideas for your child's teachers. I have "Favorite Things" lists available for you. Simply send me an e-mail (preschoolatunity@gmail.com) and I will put the list in your child's backpack next week. Gifts are very much appreciated by our hard working Staff, but are certainly not expected.

Three's Openings

Unity Preschool has some openings in our Three's classes. If you have friends or new neighbors who may be looking for a preschool, please refer them to Unity.
