December 1st - December 5th

Santa's Secret Shop

This year, the ABC Parent Group will be holding an in-school holiday gift shop on December 8th-December 10th. Fun Services will provide us with quality gifts for family members and friends. The children will be able to choose from a wide assortment of gift items in a variety of kid-friendly prices. Best of all, the gift items will be sent home in decorative gift bags so they can remain secret right up until the holidays.


Each child should have received a Gift Planner Envelope which was designed to help prepare your child for his/her shopping day. The envelope can help your child determine who they want to buy gifts for and how much they will be able to spend. In addition, the envelope is a great way to carry his/her shopping money to school. If you provide a check for your child, please make it payable to ABC. Prices per gift range between 50 cents & $11.00.


Children will BROWSE gifts from Santa’s Secret Shop on Monday, December 8th.

Children will have the opportunity to BUY gifts from Santa’s Secret Shop on Tuesday, December 9th or Wednesday, December 10th.


Picture Retake Day: December 12th

Winter Weather

Winter is upon us and cold weather is fast approaching. Please keep in mind when the temperature is 30 degrees and above the children will continue to line up outside as well as go out for recess.


It is important that they are adequately prepared for the cold temperatures. At this time of the year every child should be wearing a coat, hat, scarf and gloves when leaving the house in the morning. When there is snow on the ground boots are necessary.
