Willow Parent Bulletin #13
December 4, 2020
Keeping your child ready to learn will continue to be important. Setting out the materials the night before helps him/her locate them easily. Ideally, this is a location with few distractions like the TV. Your little wildcat needs between 9-11 hours of sleep and breakfast to maximize his/her learning. Nobody wants to be on Zoom and hear rumbling stomachs!
We want to support you. We have a Social Worker, Psychologist, and a Counselor on staff. We know the holidays can be trying even the best of years, so please reach out if you need us. 2021 is creeping up....finally... so if you need a little help until you can kick 2020 to the curb, let us know.

This week's book blurb: "Mommy's Khimar"
This week’s grant book highlight is Mommy’s Khimar written by Jamilah Thompkins-Bigelow and illustrated by Ebony Glenn. This is an endearing mother/daughter story about a young girl who plays with her mother’s scarves which are called a khimar as well as a hijab. Each scarf she tries on sparks her imagination and creative spirit taking her on adventures and surrounding her with her mother’s love. This book is available for checkout at the Homewood Public Library.
