Christmas Break [12/25 - 1/1]
Just a reminder that WDS families are still responsible for paying tuition for the week that we are closed (12/25 - 12/29). Make sure that payment is submitted to the office prior to the last day before the Christmas break.
The Two's Classroom Bathroom Upgrades will be done over break - we can't wait to come back and see the great new restrooms. A BIG thank you to Anne Hunter Hunter from H2 Design for being our project manager!
Music: For the month of December, we will be practicing our Christmas songs and rehearsing for the Christmas Chapel & Play! I can't wait to enjoy this magical season with our WDS students!

"It came without ribbons. It came without tags.
It came without packages, boxes, or bags.
And he puzzled and puzzled 'til his puzzler was sore.
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before.
'What if Christmas,' he thought, 'doesn't come from a store?'
What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more?"
This Christmas, make time for more.
